LEFT TO RIGHT : BLACK DODECAHEDRA : cardboard and vinyl - height 10", WHITE TETRAHEDRON : plexiglass and vinyl - height 8", WHITE TETRAHEDRON : plexiglass and vinyl, height 8", RED TETRAHEDRON : plexiglass and vinyl, height 8", YELLOW TETRAHEDRON : plexiglass and vinyl, height 8". Similarly to NOVELTY SCULPTURE GROUP A, GROUP B is a display of objects with reduced elevation to create a physical and psychological distance from the viewer, however, unlike GROUP A, GROUP B has more intrinsic significance. The geometry is derived from the "Timeaus", Plato's 360 b.c. treatise on the sacred formation of the universe. The dodecahedron represents the shape of the cosmos while the tetrahedron embodies fire.
