A Sonoran Night A Sonoran Night
Body: Kettle gourd with top wave cut and pit accents cut by a Dremel. Coloration: acrylics, shoe polish, charcoal, Sapphire Blue Mica, sand texturing gel, wax finish. Embellishments: Devil's claw; turquoise stones and heishi; brass beads; processed whitetail deer antler. Woven: processed, blue, Hopi sheep yarn; poly threads (dark); sanitized gerbil hair (white and tan).

The nicest aspect of this basket unfortunately can not be seen on the Web. The Mica painted over the darker parts of the body gives the black charcoal rubs a lustrous dark blue glint that glistens in the sunlight when the bowl is turned. Just so you know. Maybe some day, Net technology will catch up with artistic expression!

For sale: $235.00 includ. shipping and handling within the USA.

The biggest association in Biophysics -- the International Institute of Biophysics (IIB) e.V. in Neuss (Germany), founded for an interdisciplinary approach of the understanding and the investigation of living systems. Fourteen Institutes (Governmental Research Institutes and Universities) are connected in common research on: Coherence in Biology, Biocommunication, and Biophotonics (a.k.a.

He received Diploma in Experimental Physics in 1966 at the University of Würzburg (where Röntgen discovered X-rays), received the Röntgen-Prize of the University Würzburg, and his PH.D. in Theoretical Physics in 1969 at the University of Mainz. He delivered his Habilitation in Biophysics and Medicine in 1973 at the University of Marburg, received nomination as Professor by the Senate of the University Marburg.] in order to describe a permanent light emission from all biological systemsin terms of single photons, indicating a biological quantum phenomenon.
