This is one of the most magical things I have ever seen. It is, for all intents and purposes, a three-dimensional, photographically accurate sculpture - etched, not only onto the glass cube...but INSIDE the cube! The etching is done by computer involving hundreds of thousands of tiny pixels etched at pre-calculated locations within the glass. the accuracy of these locations is obviousy in the vicinity of 100% as I am seeing myself and wife Leslie nearly as accurately portrayed as if looking in a mirror! Leslie & I purchase this enchanting glass crystal recently at DisneyWorld's EPCOT/Imagination Shop where we were asked to pose in a quasi-photographic booth where all of our facial three dimensional measurements were computerized and transfered to the digital etching device. That's as technical as I can get in trying to explain this. The only thing I might add with any amount of authority can be summed up in two words: black magic!
