Kaleidoscope 'Side-Lite' in Curly Maple wood by Mark and Carol Reynolds
Viewers are always amazed by their first glimpse of this kaleidoscope, exclaiming over its complex, detailed image and the surprising light show it produces. The exterior case is a rich curly maple wood with a detailed inlay design on one side. The oil cell contains tiny pieces of highly reflective dichroic glass which, when in motion, catch light, creating the magical much sought after fireworks effect. With all the complexity of a Persian carpet this 3-mirror system creates a central mandala with repeating mandalas in the surround.
It measures 12" long x 2-3/4" in diameter x 4" tall when sitting on its custom slanted-styled black base.
