The way 12 stars can be made to enclose space is quite enchanting. This figure is made simply by replacing the pentagonal faces of a dodecahedron with 5 pointed stars. It is really only the dodecahedral and icosahedral forms that lend themselves to this kind of 'stellation'. Geometers tell us that it is only in two three, and four dimensions that this phenomena of stellating the platonic forms occurs.

Star forms are inherently dynamic and unstable. It is interesting to contemplate that (to put it perhaps too simply) beyond the fourth dimension there are no stars.

This model will be available soon with an angel figure seated inside

Perhaps this would be an appropriate place for a poem ...

The Cage of Stars ~ by NDV

The Angel trap
Is a jewel that contains
An infinity of stars
And if once a spirit
Should glance into its depths
He will forever remain
Lost within its heart
For the endless reflections
Of time will gather round him
And in each face
He will find a small part
Of the infinite design
Like a memory to confound him
With impossible meanings
Like invisible bars
And his wings will fade
And his eyes will dim
For he'll no longer know the presence
Of divinity within
And the wheels of his light
Will slowly cease to spin
And the whole of creation
Will begin to seem
Like the workings of some
Interminable machine ~
No way out, no way out
Every direction seems to shout –
And its true
‘cause theres no way out but in –
In through the center of the circle
Where the stillness is eternal
And the truth cannot be hidden
Behind the way things seem ~
Go with the ever flowing river
Where the knowing and the knower
Merge into One together
And even long lost angels
Awaken in their dreams
To find a star cage in their hand
And themselves
Forever Free ~
