Harmony in Nature - Anamorphic cylinder artwork

In front of the newly refurbished Athenaeum building is what I find to be one of the most interesting art pieces on Route 67. The mosaic piece is called Harmony in Nature and is an anamorphic cylinder art piece.  On the mosaic itself the picture which represents the animals and flowers of the Eastern Cape looks all squashed up but when you look at it in the cylinder's reflection it makes a perfect 3D picture.


  1. I visited the Athenaeum the other day. What a 360 degree facelift (for the better I may add). I walked passed the art piece going in but when I came out someone pointed out the unusual artistic piece of artwork.

  2. I saw this a last week, but did not realise about the reflection, how awesome. I have been trying to Google it as it has fascinated me ever since... LOVE IT! I should have just checked your blog first :-)
