The mirror has been in existence for almost as long as humankind.
By legend, the first mirror was formed in the ancient Himalayas when a little brook tarried to rest itself as if to ponder and reflect upon its course. Thereby, in time, the first woman walked and looking down into the pool was surprised by another girl! which she slowly came to understand as a reflection of herself.
Glass mirrors not only revolutionized how we see ourselves and how we magnify light, but it is also how artists see and depict the world. The mirror is cited as critical to the discovery of linear perspective making what is flat (a painting) appear to be in relief (real life).
Lucite is a higher-quality version of acrylic resin. It's a type of acrylic plastic resin that was trademarked by DuPont in 1937 and was branded as being the top quality of acrylic. The material is durable, easy to clean, and resistant to most damage including water or UV rays.
