This CMY octahedron is a ONE OF A KIND beautiful polyhedron with eight equal triangular faces. It is made up of two four-sided pyramids of equal proportion that meet at the base. These dual pyramids represent cosmic balance. It is one of the 5 Platonic solids.
The Greeks taught that these five solids were the core patterns of physical creation. Four of the solids were seen as the archetypal patterns behind the four elements (earth, air, fire, and water), while the fifth was held to be the pattern behind the life force itself.
To completely appreciate and experience this magical toy, hold it up before light or dip it into a sunbeam to bathe the room in a shifting spectrum of colour.
Just Wish it came with a stand
This thing is a mesmerizing, entrancing piece of art and an incredible way to calm your nerves and relax!
I wish I would've gotten a stand with my advance order as sold. The piece is still amazing just no stand.
These are simple clean colorful objects. They are well worth the money. Be prepared, however, to supply some sort of display stand for them. But that can be fun too.
Amazing! Only thing is; the corners the edges are surgically sharp!
