This is an absolutely HUGE marble created by Yoshi, one of his top few biggest ever, and one of my favorites ever. Yoshi named this marble after a Japanese god from the Okinawa area, and yeah, it's easy to see why! Shesir are put on the rooftops of Japanese homes to keep bad spirits away, and while I don't know for sure if this marble will perform the same job, it will most certainly keep the blues away! It features two sweet glass cups on each side, each sporting some gorgeous opals, and no, I do not have ANY idea how Yoshi pulls off this tech. It is wild and wonderful, SO beautiful and creative, so fascinating to spin and explore. There are so many angles to this marble, it's truly mind boggling. When Yoshi created it back in 2012, this was his ultimate masterpiece at the time, and it is no less stunning today. He is an absolute master among masters at laying opals in his marbles, and I can't believe how he was able to arrange these. The one is perfectly centered, and then on the other side he got those square opals perfectly lined up around the center marquis, each tilted at the same angle too. HOW?!? The green color in the dots is also very rare for Yoshi. This is possibly a once in a lifetime chance at this astounding work of art, and you will be blown away if you are blessed to see this one in hand!! 'Hard to let go of' is just a silly understatement.... Signed 'YK 12'.
