The Western Han "Light-Transmitting" Mirror known as the magic mirror has a history of more than two thousand years. It is a miracle created by the ingenious Chinese craftsmen in Western Han Dynasty (206 B.C-24.A.D.) through combining the optical and mechanical principles with superb metallurgical technology. Those wonderful mirrors are able to reflect the decorative pattern cast on their backs onto a white screen when sunlight is shining on their polished fronts. The fabrication technology of this magic mirror was lost in Song Dynasty (960-1127 A.D.) and had remained a mystery until 1975.
With a perfect combination of science and technology, culture and art, the celebrated Magic Mirror is a perfect classroom tool as well as a cherished gift.
