The word kaleidoscope derives from the Greek word Kalos (Beautiful) and
Eidos (Shape). It was invented by Sir David Brewster in 1816. A
kaleidoscope is a tube of mirrors containing loose beads, pebbles or other
small colored objects. The viewer looks in one end and light enters the
other end, reflecting off the mirrors to create unique and spectacular
images. The multi-colored murals created within the kaleidoscope can be
enjoyed by all ages for years to come.
