Birdseye Maple Burl Kaleidoscope
Reflective symmetry has been observed since ancient times. Legend claims that early Egyptians would place two or three slabs of highly polished limestone together at different angles and watch with fascination as mandalas were formed by human dancers. It was not until centuries later, however, that this optical phenomenon was encased in one small tube and given a name.
Stunning and mesmerizing, this scope appeals to all ages and is a one of a kind gift for a special birthday, anniversary, retirement or wedding.
Hand turned Birdseye Maple Burl barrel accented with brilliant dichroic glass inlay, finished with brass and eyepiece of Walnut Burl.
It rests in it's own walnut cradle.
Measures 9.5" long x 2" in diameter
