I must say I rather like these clever optical features. Quite simple really, just a three sided polished metal obelisk with a pyramidal top, but the highly reflective surfaces create interesting perspectives of the garden. If you look at a central section of it, you could imagine that you were looking through a glass prism rather than at a solid metal opaque structure.
