Kaleidoscope - Music Box with 'Over the Rainbow' by Hiroshi Wakabayashi
This is Hiroshi Wakabayashi's music box kaleidoscope that plays 'Over the Rainbow', a ballad written for the movie The Wizard of Oz. The body of the scope is made with copper tubing, copper wire and a lightweight decorated square base that give this kaleidoscope an antique look.
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 central mandala from the 2-mirror system inside the copper tube.
A unique kaleidoscope sure to please both the eyes and ears!
Approximately 11" tall with a base of 4-3/4" by 4".
