New Acquisitions #10

A few weeks ago I bought one of these for a dear friend. Made by a woman in Simon's Town, in her workshop overlooking the harbour. My friend's has butterflies on it. I had to play with it a little before I wrapped it - just to check that it worked, of course. And was so taken with it that I got this one for myself ...












Can you guess what it is?

when you put your eye to it and daylight comes through the other end- you can see the magic inside, changing, morphing, dancing- it is eye food, and the butterflies are for a painted lady...
