Roy employs a large range of techniques in this kaleidoscope style, including using his signature dark brass patina to resemble an antiqued finish popularized by the Victorian, "steam punk" genre.
The extraordinarily vibrant and detailed 3-mirror mandalas (interior images) that can be found when looking through this kaleidoscope are a result of a combination of his very "flat" isosceles triangle of mirrors with his two independently turning wheels which he created in an unusual, decorative shape. The wheel facing you when you look through the eyepiece creates the foreground of the mandalas, whereas the other one creates the background. The wheels consist of beads and baubles he's chosen in a multitude of colors, virtually guaranteeing you'll never see the same pattern twice.
This special kaleidoscope rests on its custom metal stand, also created in an unusual shape. The kaleidoscope itself measures 9-1/2" long x 2-3/8" in diameter (at the wheel end). The stand is 4-3/4" long x 2-1/2" wide. The set stands 2-1/2" tall.
