These images are upright details of quartz crystals. They represent abstracted anthropomorphized alien forms. Quartz is known in art for the properties of splitting light into a spectrum, in technology for the ability to focus, amplify and transform energy in computer memory chips, ultrasound devices, watches, microphones, radio transmitters, and radio receivers and in metaphysics for the ability to heal, energize and expand consciousness.

Drawings on the surface with silver ink are added to address the symbolic languages of abstracted geometry, mathematics and signals from outer space.
