    Carved from a single, large rough boulder of Brazilian gray-banded agate, the natural white layers of the agate are used to depict Icarus in flight against a darkened sky, while natural white banding of the rough has been used in the composition to depict clouds.
    The bowl possesses a slightly everted rim that was polished to reveal the fine translucency of the material along the edges.
