Mirror cabinet

Obtain three sections of mirror each about 3 x 4 inches in size, or cut them your- self. Polish them well, and join them with adhesive tape - reflecting surfaces facing inwards - to make a triangular tube. Stick coloured paper outside. If you now look obliquely from above into the mirror prism you will discover a magic world!

If you hold a finger in the prism, its image is always multiplied six times in an endless series in all directions. If you place a small flower inside, a meadow of flowers stretches into the distance. And if you move two small figures, innumerable couples dance in an immense hall of mirrors.
