Magic Angle Shadow Sculptures by John V. Muntean

Scientist and artist John V. Muntean created these amazing hand-carved wooden sculptures where each sculpture contains three images and appear to be abstract forms, but when lit from certain angles, cast shadows of distinct forms and figures.

"A Magic Angle Sculpture appears to be nothing more than an abstract wooden carving, skewered with a rod and mounted on a base. However, when lit from above and rotated at the magic angle (54.74º) it will cast three alternating shadows. Every 120º of rotation, the amorphous shadows evolve into independent forms. Our scientific interpretation of nature often depends upon our point of view. Perspective matters."
