Diamagnetic Zen Monk


Limited edition fine-art diamagnetic sculpture by Artist Ernie McElhannon. Featuring a rare-earth magnet levitating freely between a monk’s hands, and cast in solid bismuth, this beautiful display personifies perfect harmony utilizing diamagnetic forces. The magnet will float freely, with no outside power, for eternity. The two large ceramic magnets under the candles attract the little Neo magnet, and the bismuth repels the powerful magnet’s poles equally between the hands.   The display includes the sculpture of the monk, the stained wooden base, the big magnets with a rustic chipped-edge finish, five different polished floater magnets, and two standard votive candles in glass.
