A hand-coloured image with an eye in the centre of a star, symbolising optics. It was originally engraved for the Encyclopedia Londinensis. Putti in the four corners are demonstrating optical principles and instruments, showing a telescope, a prism, refraction in water and a camera obscura. The figures around the centre represent the different colours of the spectrum.
