This handsome opaque stone is mainly black, with striking striations of deep pink, green, and purple. The carving of two silkworms feeding on a pair of mulberry leaves is highlighted by small patches of lightly colored stone, which the artist has incorporated into the silkworms' tails.
The silkworm eats and grows to build a cocoon which results in threads of beautiful silk. Because of their focus on a singular goal, silkworms represent consistency and a hardworking nature.
