These marbles are from Jason's famous 'Gravity' series of marbles, and they are the summit of his amazing murine/milli work to date! There is an ENORMOUS amount of work behind and in each of these marbles from the series, as there is months worth of work just in creating all of the different images and then putting them together into various scenes, etc., before Jason even started working on building the marbles. Countless hours and untold amounts of energy were put together to bring his amazing vision to fruition in these pieces, and they are AWESOME! Each marble is a multi-layered scene that gives a killer 3D effect in hand, showing one of Jason's greatest loves and pastimes - mountain biking! These are all FAR, FAAAAR better in hand, because these 2D pics just don't show that depth AT ALL, and makes it look all jumbled together, so frustratingly hard to photograph well. It's almost better to just look at the smaller images instead of the larger ones as well, since that's more of how they look in hand. Each one shows a mountain landscape, complete with flowers, trees and shrooms, and then a chairlift as well, either off to one side or towards the back of the scene. Around and in front of that scene are bikers doing flips through the air, soooo fun! Other elements abound, so fun to explore. The backside features a HUGE slice of the biker murine. These marbles are absolute masterpieces built from decades of glass experience! And there's a BONUS - each marble comes with a special green anodized stand that Jason created for this series, with the marble name and details on it! Signed 'JLee 17'.
