Michel de Broin's Mirror Sculpture: Strange, Very Sci-Fi Chic!

This mysterious thing, which at first glance seemed straight out of a Star Trek episode, is actually a 2004 mirror artpiece called Superficial by French artist Michel de Broin:

Upon invitation to reflect on the notion of transparency, that led me into the forest to envelop the contour of a large stone with fragments of mirror. The large stone, tucked away deep in the woods, became a reflective surface for its surroundings. In this play of splintered radiance, the rock disappears in its reflections. Because it reflects one cannot be mislead by its presence, yet we cannot seize it, rather it is the rock that reflects us.

Instead of people...how about animals? I wonder how many faceprints of deer, birds, bears and other critters are on that.

Sir David Attenborough: "And here we have the rare endangered red coloured sparrow. So rare is it for humans to see that its quite a treat to film it as it gracefully flies...*THUD!*...Oh my..." ;)
