The Infinite and Fractal Nature of the Pentagram…
The pentagram or the five pointed star is one of the most potent, powerful, and persistent symbols in our human history! It has been important to almost every ancient culture, from the Mayans of Latin America, to India, China, Greece, and Egypt. It has been found scratched on the walls of Neolithic caves, and in Babylonian drawings, where it marks the pattern the planet Venus makes on its travels- a secret symbol of the Goddess Ishtar!
According to the Greek mathematician and philosopher Pythagoras, five was the number of man, because of the fivefold division of the body, and the ancient Greek division of the soul. The five points of the pentagram each represent one of the five elements that make up man: fire, water, air, earth, and spirit so pentagram was the chief of the ancient Pythagorean symbols!! The phi ratio is inherent in this powerful symbol so it is a physical representation of regeneration and life.
I created this potent piece with the intention of all beings having balance and harmony with all the elements that exist within and around us to fully realise our multidimensional selves and become unlimited in every way.. As well as to feel the interconnectedness and infinite fractal nature of all life.
