I seriously run out of words for describing Yoshi's work. The dot control seen in this marble is literally almost impossible to fathom. I don't like comparing artists like Yoshi to robots, because the art seen in his creations is so wild, but really, it's hard to imagine human hands achieving this. This gem features a large white octagonal opal in the heart of it, with another beautiful square black rainbow opal resting on one of the poles. The dot work then envelops these opals like only Yoshi's work can. The interior dot work on the one side is slightly twisted to give it a turbine effect, incredibly precise and controlled, and so SO fascinating!! The whole marble is just a wonder, and it's one of those that I rather hope doesn't sell so I can enjoy it longer. Yoshi was IN THE ZONE with this one, let me tell you! It is signed 'YK 13'.
