"A tall prismatic form of clear crystal is shaped and engraved to represent the spire of a cathedral. Because of the purity and highly refractive nature of Steuben crystal, a fascinating optical illusion is created-engraved figures of the Apostles and architectural details seem to float and multiply repeatedly within the sculpture."
