This unsigned vintage op art/pop art sculpture is 14” in diameter and 7” tall. It features lenticular eyes of two sizes in two layers. Small changes in the viewer’s position will give the eyes the illusion of movement. The top layer of eyes is attached to the heads of what appear to be painted nails, driven into a board. The bottom layer is attached directly to the base. The nails, and eyes, are arranged in a Star-of-David pattern. There is also a pattern to the size and location of the eyes that gives a visually interesting effect. The sculpture is covered by an acrylic dome. No markings or signature of any kind are found on the piece.
The eyes look like VariVue lenticulars (sometimes these are called “flasher” or “flicker” eyes).
The sculpture received 13 bids from 5 bidders and sold for $157.50 from San Diego, California. Shipping added $35.83. eBay item 360597953860 ended March 2, 2013 at 16:38:33 PST (United States).
