The artist Nucleo has put a piece of old oak in jade stone for an experimental art project. As a result, the stone has cracked and bubbled in certain places, making it a detailed object that visitors could examine for an extended period of time.

The color of the jade stone is part of what makes the art piece so fascinating. Because it's juxtaposed with the wood, it's as if the hue stands out that much more. Typically jade is viewed as an elite material that's been used for ancient royals of the past, but Nucleo aims to examine it in its purest form here, contrasted with the natural wood. The result is a stunning piece of artwork.
