Lunar eclipses, produced by the interposition of the Earth between Sun and Moon, are natural phenomena in which the latter falls under the shadow of the first. The obsidian practically blocks the brass in its entirety, prompting the spectator to change angles in order to appreciate the underlying reflection and its colors. It is worth remembering that the Earth‘s atmosphere influences the tonalities that can be appreciated during a lunar eclipse, since the light that crosses it is refracted and generates distinct chromatic effects upon our satellite. In a similar way, ambient light creates various interplays of tones and textures that result from the interaction between brass as reflective material and obsidian as its absorbent counterpart.
