Yoshi named this marble Ugoki, which roughly translates to 'moving', or changing position in a state of activity. More than anything else though, this marble will move your soul, as you gaze in wide wonder on the beauty it beholds, both from within and without. The dot stacking is taken to incredible levels with this marble, boggling the mind that Yoshi can do such a thing in such a small amount of space. The square opals inside, one on each side of the marble, are special in and of themselves, truly beautiful creations which Yoshi has encapsulated perfectly, frozen in glorious time forever! The marble moves in such a way as to flow all around, from top to bottom and side to side, begging your eyes to follow and marvel. An incredible beauty that will enthrall you in hand!! This marble comes from the 2014 Team Japan show in Japan, with Yoshi's signature opal inside, and signed with a '14' in ti pen as well.
