There is a mathematcal oddity called Platonic Solids that I've always found interesting. Platonic solids are geometric objects that have two properties, all the sides are the same shape, and all the edges are the same length. There are only 5 such objects, tetrahedron, octahedron, cube, dodecahedron and icosahedron. The last of these, the icosahedron, is made up of twelve equilateral pentagons.

In this painting I've sliced an icosahedron in half, and imagined I was looking simultaneously out through all the faces or half faces. The five sided canvas was a natural extension of the idea. I placed a yantra in the "middle" of each face, and created a background out of a "degrading" tiling.
