This piece consists of a disk of Macassar Ebony with approximately 1,500 pieces of silver wire embedded in it to represent the several billion stars in our galaxy. Our home star is represented by a single gold bead located in the "Goldilocks" region of our galaxy. Not too hot (close to the center) not to cold (to far out from center). Like all good galaxies, there is a black hole in the center, represented by a black bead on the back side of the disk.
