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 interest  to mathematicians and philosophers, representing the symbols for earth and fire, water and air.

The Divine Proportion

The powers of mathematics and science and its application to art were a favorite study of Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519), the quintessential Renaissance man. In 1509 Luca Paciola published the famous 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 shaded 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 wonderful proportions of this timelessly intriguing Octahedron by Authentic Models.
