This is Hiroshi Wakabayashi's handheld turning oil cell kaleidoscope with an integrated stand. The copper body of the scope is enhanced by torching the copper to create colorful heat patinas offering an antique look. The turning oil cell is adorned with series of colorful natural stones set in a gold epoxy.
The bright and colorful interior image is a 8 point mandala created with a 2 mirror system. The oil cell contents include natural stones, strips of gold foil, tiny pieces of colorful beads and dichroic beads.
This scope is 7-1/4" long, 3-3/4" wide at the object cell end (including the integrated stand) and 1-1/8" wide at the eye piece end.
