Cool, Calm and Collected

Calming as the sky on a long winter's night, this sand window offers the weary eye an ever-changing view. Multicolored sand and water are sealed in a wooden frame, with the northern lights in a midnight sky printed behind them. Rotate the glass, and enjoy the sight of the sand swirling and shifting into clouds and landscapes, glaciers and mountains of intricate lines and patterns. The included rear mounting hardware allows you to rotate the frame a full 360 degrees. Created by Klaus Bosch and handmade in Austria, this inventive artwork will bring a calming, natural presence and a sense of wonder to your office or home. Please note that the video above is of Black Window Art, available here.

I got my wife this painting as a birthday gift cause I wanted to find something unique that she might not have thought of before. I also got her a 2-in-1 laptop and a ukulele and even though the other gifts was more expensive she love the painting the most and can't stop talking about it and telling her family and friends about it.

My wife has Asperger's and this has been awesome for calming her. I got it for our 5 year anniversary. She spent over 3 hours playing with it and loves the colors and the way the sand falls. Even more amazing, she is visually impaired and this has her attention often.

A splendid piece of art that one can constantly change.

Simply stated: fascinating! The anticipation of what the new look will be after rotating the piece is too difficult to explain. For me, it's hard to not watch the new scene that is forming.

Beautiful and Fun!

My son is 37 and hard to buy for as he has everything and if he doesn't, he gets it himself. People like him are extremely hard to buy for! When I found this I just knew he'd love it and he did! So did the rest of the family. His wife timed him playing with it one day saying he went two hours watching it. It is beautiful, it's mesmerizing, and fun to boot! I'm getting another one for my dad. Beautiful work!

Great Gift!

I gave it to the person as a birthday gift. Keep in mind that I was shopping for someone who could and does purchase anything they want on their own accord. I knew I needed to find something that he would unlikely have and something that would peak his interest. I found both of those in this one art piece. It's perfect because of the design and how it works and the color scheme can't be beat. Just a tip though, if you're giving it as a gift, it's worth it to open the box and check everything. It also helps if you put just the right amount of air prior to wrapping and giving the gift, this way the receiver and start enjoying it immediately!
