As a retired earth scientist, I’m fascinated by the mounting evidence that there was once abundant liquid water on Mars.  But, perhaps our paradigm is wrong; perhaps when we get there we’ll find the water in apples sequestered beneath the Martian soil.  Figure and base sculpted from a single block of pittosporum wood with inlays of ebony, holly and chak-te-koke. Finished with wood bleach, aniline dyes, and acrylic polyurethane.
