Mahler Kaleidoscope

The title of this piece was inspired by Mahler's Fourth Symphony. This is one of the three largest Kaleidoscopes I have built. It features a three mirrored interior which provides a seemingly three-dimensional view, and what I call the "spiky orb." It is built from a mosaic of many different woods, and the base is mainly Black Walnut. The mirrors and optics were made by Jonathan Eaton.
