Beauty of Nature

The Authentic Models Icosahedron is a Platonic figure of 20 triangles that represents the element of water. Authentic Models have produced a hand crafted model from delicate pieces of wood with intricate hand crafted joints. Finished in translucent shades of distressed French finish honey, this model resembles the beauty of nature's perfection. It comes complete with a story hangtag, explaning all about Platonic figures.

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 symbols for earth and fire, water and air. The fifth element, heavenly ether, was considered more mysterious and was more difficult to define.

The Divine Proportion

The 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 iconic 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 drew 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 interesting proportions of this timelessly intriguing Icosahedron by Authentic Models.
