Left buried beneath the Moon's surface to act as a signal
device when uncovered by the descendants of the primates visited in the
distant past, on the third rock from the sun, this solid black object
screamed its message once and then went dead. Never to be probed by the
man ape relatives, it was buried (and abandoned) again.
Depicting the Monolith from the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey, the model
is a balsa wood block 1 inch x 4 inches x 9 inches (1x2x3 ratio). It's hand-painted using a water reducible polyurethane paint
I found in the local RC airplane hobby store. I lost track of the
numerous coats of paint and sandings.
The base is a piece of black foam core board.
