Veil is a four metre high curtain made of 1,440 Swarovski crystals It creates an incredible visual illusion; when viewed through a mirror, the shimmering curtain reveals its hidden secret: an iconic image set within the canvas of crystals, and when the viewer looks back at the curtain, the image disappears. Cocksedge sees this first edition of Veil for Swarovski Crystal Palace as a romantic illusion.
