Sub-Sampling into capsules.
The DNA series further developed into individual “samples” of the original core material. These measure at approx. 6in x 3in diameter on a brass chain fitted with a bearing – allowing spin.
Samples from other worlds.
This sharp edged spinner with red core sample is from our sibling planet Mars. Where the human sample has the softness of curves, this Martian sample has the hard lines seen on the red planet – desolate of horizons blurred by trees.
