Don't underestimate this 4 x 4 cm cube of preserved plant, as it offers a glimpse into our universe. The word 'Sola' with the Japanese kanji '宙', means 'universe' or 'blue sky'. The small plant captures the essense of the universe; it encourages you and young children to see the beauty of a plant's life, and become attuned to nature’s majesty.
Each Sola Cube is handmade by an experienced Japanese craftsman in Kyoto. Outstanding craftsmanship is required to ensure that this small transparent cube holds a plant at its very center and that no air bubbles get inside.
