A matter of perspective

Star of David, a breathtaking piece by Czech glass artist Vaclav Cigler currently on display at the Litvak Gallery in Tel Aviv, is remarkable in the way it draws the viewer in. The tiniest change in the viewer's position, in this case just an inch shift, and their (my) experience of the piece changes entirely.


Visit Wordless Wednesday to see what people aren't saying this week, and Wordful Wednesday, where most of the people will be talking about Halloween, but not me since Halloween isn't celebrated here in Israel, so you'll have to make do with artsy-fartsy stuff instead ;).

Beautiful piece, and photos of it. It's interesting how such a simple form can lead to such complex perspectives.

Hmm interesting how it does that. What a creative work of art and beatuiful too. love the color! I wonder if there is a msg hidden in that ability to change perspective based on proximity?
