Kaleidoscope Fish Theme - Liquid Filled Spin Top
The kaleidoscope makes magic with light and mirrors. It may be considered a child's toy (or a toy for all ages), but it is also a simple optical device with technical applications for designers and pattern-makers. Greek words are the source of the name; it comes from kalos, eidos, andskopios meaning beautiful, form, and view, respectively.
