If you want the best of what Jesse Taj has ever created, then you HAVE to get one of these multi-layered scene marbles that Jesse has become famous for. As far as I know, Jesse was the first to really perfect this style to create such amazing depth in the marble and give us a true 3D scene that extends back into the marble. Jesse uses both the layering tech and the optics of the lens to achieve such a sweet effect. This beauty features a Grateful Dead Dancing Bear image, with a rainbow extending up into the sky, a couple of trees behind the rainbow, other millie floating around in there, and of course, the ever present opal 'crystal' which you almost always see in Jesse's scenes. But ALSO, and probably my favorite part, ha - the UFO flying around back there! Clearly Jerry Garcia was 'visited' at some point, ha ha, and this marble proves it! You've really gotta see this one in hand to truly appreciate it, that opal is really awesome how it is tucked down in the hillside there! The back is completed with more clouds and butterflies flitting around, Jesse's classic style. Don't miss this opportunity to own one of these, they are getting harder and harder to acquire! This one is early history, probably from 2000 or 2001.
