An homage to M.C. Escher's "Hand with Reflecting Sphere"

   
Mirrored Sphere
$12.95
Mirrored spheres create fascinating distortions of one's surroundings. M.C. Escher employed a mirrored sphere in one of his most famous prints, "Hand with Reflecting Sphere" (1935). He also employed mirrored spheres in "Still Life with Spherical Mirror" and "Three Spheres II". This affordable sphere is constructed of stainless steel. The quality of the reflection is good, though there are small areas where the reflection is somewhat distorted. 4" diameter (10 cm).
