Our New Exhibit – Rubins Vase

To mark the celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, we have managed to get hold of a very rare item to help celebrate.

Our new exhibit is a Rubins Vase which was built in 1977 to celebrate the Queens Silver Jubilee. the vase contains the hidden silhouette of the profiles of the Queen and of Prince Philip!

We are thrilled to celebrate The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with this highly unusual exhibit. This Rubins Vase is extremely rare and is one of the best examples of its kind. Most Rubins vases have only one hidden face, whereas this vase has two. We think it’s the perfect way to mark The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and give our visitors a chance to see The Queen and Price Philip in a whole new light.

I’m sure you have seen this illusion before (but not quite like this) and the illusion was invented by a Danish psychologist by the name of Edgar Rubin in 1915.

Why don’t you come along to Camera Obscura during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations and have a look for yourself!
