A Bronze apple core stands in for the molten metal center of our Earth while the mantle mantle allows the ceramic crust, made of material from the shell we live on, to ride above it as red lava spews upward through it.

This is my favorite of you work. I love how it's related to the Earth. This actually helped me in Science.
