1. A device comprising:

  • a side wall including a minimum height, an upper region and a lower region,a base engaged with the lower region of the side wall, andan upper surface extending from the upper region of the side wall to form an upper recess;

    a riser extending upwardly away from the base;

    an opaque disk at a top of the riser, the opaque disk comprises a first tunnel and a second tunnel, wherein each of the tunnels has a top end and a bottom end and is diagonally oriented in both a vertical and a horizontal dimension and further oriented such that the bottom ends of the tunnels are further apart than the top ends of the tunnels;

    a projection screen comprising a flame shape with a front side having convexity, the projection screen extending upwardly from the opaque disk through an aperture in the upper surface and positioned off of a central axis of the aperture through the upper surface,the projection screen includes a fixed end and a free end, the fixed end of the projection screen is fixedly attached to the opaque disk, whereby the projection screen is fixed with respect to a position of the upper surface, and the free end of the projection screen is located at a height above the minimum height of the sidewall and below the maximum height of the sidewall;

    a first source of light positioned below the upper surface and configured to project light through the aperture onto the front side of the projection screen and located at a fixed distance from the projection screen that is at least partially within the second tunnel such that a top end of the second source of light is located at a height below the top end of the second tunnel;

    a second source of light positioned below the upper surface and configured to project light through the aperture onto the front side of the projection screen and located at a fixed distance from the projection screen that is at least partially within the first tunnel such that a top end of the first source of light is located at a height below the top end of the first tunnel; and

    circuitry electrically connected to the first source of light and the second source of light, wherein the circuitry is configured to independently control intensities of the light projected by the first source of light and the second source of light.
