Max Mandala - the most versatile kaleidoscope in the Higgins' range. This is a dual-mirror system kaleidoscope with 3 interchangeable objects of different types. The two image systems are 1) a two-mirror giving a 6-point mandala and 2) a 3-mirror 30/60/90 degree giving a perfectly tiled, repeating 6-point image. The 3 objects are 1) an open window heavy brass tumble wheel with exotic glass contents, 2) a brass oil-filled wheel with similar glass objects giving a slow tumbling action and 3) a pair of fixed-element wheels including dichroic and textured glass and other media. A matching cradle stores the wheels not currently in use.
Overall dimensions 8" long x 2 1/2" wide x 3 3/4" tall (when sitting on its cradle).
This piece is #10 in a Limited Edition of 25. Signed and dated by the artist.
