Riding the Waves Balance Toy

$ 100.00

Art inspired by and demonstrating aspects of science were popular in Victorian times. People loved sculptures that did the seemingly impossible. Optical illusions, magnetic forces, the laws of gravity: they all seemed magical in an era when society was changing fast and the industrial revolution was unstoppable. Skyhooks, effortless counter-weighted art that could be set on a shelf or the rim of a table, and set in motion to everybody’s delight and amazement.
