Like a slick ribbon in hands
This fish has bent.
Where is the end, where is the beginning...?
S. O.

If we look carefully enough, we will notice that the brink between two events is just an illusion. Like in case of a ribbon-fish sliding through our hands, we never know which part of it we are currently holding, the moments of events flash before our eyes. And only, it seems, got a grasp of a situation, as everything has changed. There is no end and no beginning... There is only a circle of events...

The white forest pear wood has beautiful playing-in-the-light patterns of texture. These patterns are well seen on the pictures. The eyes are inlayed with amber.
