In an Exhibition

This is a piece in my diatom series, although it is not really a diatom. Diatoms are phytoplankton that photosynthesize. Radiolaria are actually amoeboid protozoa zooplankton. They have an intricate silica skeleton similar to diatoms and just as fascinating when viewed by scanning electron micrographs. Macassar Ebony Tung oil
