The word "lithophane" derives from Greek "litho", which is from "lithos" which means stone or rock, and "phainein" meaning "to cause to appear." Originally, lithopanes were made from carved porcelin but with modern 3d printing, the world of lithopanes are more affordable. Our unique pieces are 3D printed in plastic and take 5-7 hours to create.
With a simple tealight and stand, (supplied) the photo comes to life in an almost "holographic" appearance.
We have also created a night light version which adds a little spookiness to your hallways.
The tealight stand comes with an LED tealight. The night light version comes with an LED nightlight plug and adapter to hold the litophane in place.
The Master Mystery Lithophane shows Houdini with the first robot in cinema, Q the Automaton Robot.
Approximate size is 3.5 x 4.5 inches.
A truly special reproduction of the poster, this unique piece will be a welcome addition to any magician's magic room.
