Kaleidoscope - Music Box 'Memory' by Hiroshi Wakabayashi

This beautiful handcrafted music box kaleidoscope plays the song "Memory", a show tune composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, with lyrics by Trevor Nunn based on a poem by T. S. Eliot. It was written for the 1981 musical Cats, where it is sung primarily by the character Grizabella as a melancholic remembrance of her glamorous past and as a plea for acceptance. 

Memory, all alone in the moonlight.
I can dream of the old days, life was beautiful then.
I remember, the time I knew what happiness was.
Let the memory live again.

This kaleidoscope has an overall antique look with a body made from torched copper tubing and wire set atop a lightweight square base of copper, wood and painted acrylic.  The turning object plate is made with brass colored epoxy with a variety of colorful beads and stones set into it.  When you crank the attached hand crank, the music plays and the object plate turns creating a colorful full field view of repeating mandalas from the 3-mirror system inside the copper tube.  You'll enjoy the color and sparks when light reflects off the gold epoxy while hearing the lovely song at the same time.

A unique kaleidoscope sure to please both the eyes and ears! 

This kaleidoscope measures approximately 8-1/2" tall with a base of 4" by 3-1/4".
