ABOUT THIS PIECE:

The last piece, and the last one completed. As the vines age, they go from yellow to orange to this dark red, and eventually to black (tho I never made that piece and probably never will). After they turn black they become a kind-of fossilized version of themselves and turn white, eventually crumbling away to dust. It is from this dust that the new vines are born (the GeoVines do not make seeds), completing the life-cycle.

 

I spent quite a lot of time on a kind of “periodic table” of vine colors, though I never quite completed it. You can view it here in its incomplete state.
