Description

The British flag (or 'Union Jack') is transformed so that if it is viewed from above with a straight-sided reflective cone placed in its center, the viewer perceives its original form to lie in the plane at the base of the cone. This so-called anamorphic art is readily studied by using the versatile graphics functions of Mathematica.
