A symbol of early Jewish mysticism, and basis for Metatron's Cube, this stellated octahedron shape known as Merkaba, has been part of spirituality and religious iconography for ages. Researcher and physicist, Drunvalo Melchizedek, described it as a Star Tetrahedron since it can be viewed as a three-dimensional Star Of David. It's been known to geometers and mathematicians dating back to the 1500's. A perfect addition to your 3D printed mathematical art collection and desktop showpieces. *A maker tutorial video is also available for modeling in 3dsmax or Blender.
