    Here is the new 3D sculpture I created, titled The Seed of Yggdrasil. The design is based on the classic Celtic-style knot symbol for the tree of life from Norse mythology, Yggdrasil.

    You can find it in my store too: a8dcc7e531


    I created the seed sprout in the center, and inside the leaves you can see a small sphere of blue. If you look reaaally carefully, you could notice that the continents in the blue ball are in the shape of Pangea and not our current distribution.

    The texture is amazing, the little ridges from the 3D printing process give it a very natural and tactile feel, and the colors are really vibrant. And the cat didn't care at all.

    Wow, that looks really nice. The vibrant colours make it look almost juicy to me! I can imagine it growing.

    Hey Silverbeam, thanks! I made white and white polished available for you. If you need any others let me know and I'll make them available, I just like to keep the options limited to the best materials for the design so that people don't get confused when ordering.
