Sola Cube - Apple of Peru
Lace-like veins form the calyx that gently wraps and protects the fruit of this plant. The botanical meaning for this plant is: delicate with a solid core.
1.5" x 1.5" x 1.5"
The concept behind Sola Cubes marries two traditional Japanese values: a reverence for nature and a philosophical appreciation of small, humble elements that are easily overlooked. Each cube is cast from crystal clear acrylic resin and then hand polished, right down to its crisp, micro-radiused edge. Considerable craftsmanship is required to make the cubes, ensuring that no air bubbles are present. Preserved inside is a single leaf, seed, or flower—individually or in groups, the cubes create an opportunity for a meditative moment on the beauty and power of the natural world. Made in Kyoto, Japan by Usagi No Nedoko.
Resin and a single seed or plant
The packaged plant inside is sourced from nature so there will always be variation in size, color and shape. The packaged plant may or may not look exactly like the plant shown in the photo. Each solo cube is hand crafted so there may be slight bubbles or powder like material in the acrylic, but these are not considered defects.
To clean, please wipe with a soft cloth. Thin cracks may appear if cleaned with chemical solutions such as thinner or alcohol. Keep away from directly sunlight or high temperature as acrylic will discolor or crack in these conditions.
