from start to finish, my piece for the elements art show. my element is GERMANIUM (Ge). i love the effect of all the stamps layered on top of each other to make the shape of the bear (symbol of berlin) on top of the german flag colors.  i want to try this concept on other things now…  i have layer madness! (have had it for a while)all the stamps were either chemistry symbols, or icons related to things made with germanium, its atomic weight/structure, the year it was found, germany etc.

also special thanks to elmo for helping in the creative process as usual
