"It's a type of flower that's found all over the world."

The plant is formed of two leaves and a stem, and the overall shape is spherical to represent the world.

This is a real 360° sculpture and the limited number of photographs make it hard to do it justice. More photos are available on request).

This very unusual stone, in shades of green, yellow and pink, is a rediscovered variety of serpentine; this piece has a number of veins of quartz running through it as well as a web of black veins in the stone. All the colouration in the stone is entirely natural, enhanced by the application of a coat of clear wax.
