The Joseph Campbell Foundation's John Bucher
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION: Magic mirrors hold a storied place in mythology and folklore, acting as doorways to mystical realms, enchanted devices for seeing the unseen, and icons representing veracity and delusion. They seem to transcend their ordinary reflective purpose, serving as mediums for divination, peepholes into the innermost self, and grand facilitators for illusion. Mythologist John Bucher will tell stories of mystic mirrors ranging from the Japanese legend of Yata no Kagami, a sacred mirror representing wisdom and honesty, to the smoking mirror of the Aztec god, Tezcatlipoca, who used his obsidian mirror as a tool of prophecy.
