    I hadn't posted this as it's so darnedly difficult to photograph, capturing the mirroring while not appearing in the picture. So I thought I would go for it and post a sort of selfie. Here it is.
    The first pic shows that the red within the giraffe is not uniform.
    The iridescence is uneven, meaning that there is less of a selfie from one side compared to the other.
    22cm high x 17cm diameter.

      This is fab Ian! - interestingly my giraffe is the same re the iridescence, maybe it's specific to this decor??

      Lovely, unusual, Vase Ian. I love the giraffe pattern too & know how difficult it can be to not get a selfie at times, lol
