Fantastic! The swirls and deep color are stunning.And the shape really draws you in,the perfect form and the contradicting erosian sets this off.
Very well done indeed.

Beautiful Joe, I don’t know why but this one just grabs me. Maybe it’s the occlusions, it’s definately something. I really like this one.

Another great masterpiece by the master himself. I love the color and the crack. It is definitely a crackpot.
