Description
A mind-boggling optical marvel: with a glass marble ‘lens’, you can turn your subject into a fractured array of repeating images and symmetrical patterns. Turn the barrel and see faces, objects, and views in a dizzying display. The first kaleidoscope was patented in 1817 by Scottish inventor and optics pioneer Dr. David Brewster (1781-1868); he chose the name to mean ‘observation of beautiful forms’ and intended the avant-garde instrument to inspire artists with eye-popping patterns and optical effects.
