Kaleidoscope Facet Lens
The world with new eyes
How special the biological power of sight is, children and adults understand very beautifully and impressively with the help of a kaleidoscope. Turned by hand from local maple wood and equipped with a facet lens, this colorfully painted kaleidoscope breaks up the one perspective we usually take to many angles and adds from them a multiform pattern that is formed with every movement.
Insects see the world with such compound eyes, which send thousands of individual images to the insect brain, where they are assembled into a single image. "At first glance," the kaleidoscope makes us marvel that bees and butterflies, ants and grasshoppers can orient themselves at all and not fly incessantly against the nearest tree trunk or stumble over roots and chunks of earth. (On the other hand, we humans also find our way around, even though our eyes send the image of the world to our brains upside down). And so your offspring will gain a new, more sophisticated perspective on what we call seeing, recognizing, and perspective - and, on top of that, may even be inspired to draw a new picture of the world.
