New from Hiroshi Wakabayashi, this is INCA, a handheld polarized oil cell kaleidoscope.
The bright and colorful interior mandala is created with a 2 mirror system and an oil filled object chamber containing tiny pieces of transparent film. To further enhance the interior beauty, Hiroshi used a polarized film inside the object chamber. This film filters out light rays that would normally pass through and illuminates the transparent pieces inside. The range of colors is caused by the light rays bending at various angles.
The body of scope is a textured gold colored metal. The exterior of the object chamber is enhanced with a decorative gold epoxy and small colorful gems.
This scope is approximately 7" long and 2" in diameter.
