Platonic Figures

The Platonic figures, the ‘supreme expression of the majesty of geometry’, were revered by philosophers and mathematicians of ancient Greece & the Renaissance. From Plato's time these forms had special significance to mathematicians and philosophers, representing symbols for earth and fire, water and air.

The Divine Proportion

The mysterious powers of mathematics and science and its application to art were a favorite study of the quintessential Renaissance man, Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519). In 1509 Luca Paciola published the legendary book 'De divina proportione' (The Divine Proportion), and Da Vinci, the book's illustrator, devised a method within to portray the five Platonic shapes in three dimensional perspectives. The shapes he designed were related to the elements: the cube to Earth, tetrahedron to fire, octahedron to air, icosahedron to water, and dodecahedron to heavenly ether.

Enjoy the classic beauty and pleasing proportions of this timelessly intriguing Elevated Tetrehedron by Authentic Models.
