MANHATTAN PROJECT VIEWING WINDOW.
An approximately 54 x 36 inch rectangle of heavily leaded glass, 6 inches thick, approximately 1500 lbs, on custom antique wooden cart, glass illuminated from below with 3 custom LED lights. This high-tech glass specimen is composed of a high percentage of lead oxide, 70%, producing its deep yellow color.
Subsequently purchased from the federal government by a salvage operator for its metal window casements, the glass passed through the hands of a collector and into the hands of the present owner.
