"Christmas Tree SE" by Massimo Strino features a fantastic Christmas tree studded with Swarovski crystals, hung with many colorful ornaments and surrounded by snow skiers, skaters, sleds full of people and presents, a dog walker and a snowman. Such fun! This piece has two kaleidoscopes each with a different 3-mirror system. When these are directed at the Christmas tree display the scopes create brilliant images. The Christmas tree can be turned to wind the music box and as it turns it plays "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas". The base on which the tree stands also turns freely in a lazy-susan-style. Each of the kaleidoscopes has its own Swarovski crystal encrusted LED light that can be used to shine extra light on the figures as you veiw them through the scopes. The base is made of wood and is covered in decorative pig skin. The entire piece measures 21-3/4"L x 12"W x 14"T. This scope is signed, dated (2015) and numbered (1/1) by the artist.
