I Ching Spherical

I found a template for this work in an interesting passage researching the Mathematical connections between Hesiod's "Theogony" and the I-Ching.

 

This is really heavy stuff and i don't know too much about it, but it looks quite cool and has some great cosmic mystery in it. As far as I found out, it's a spherical structure constructed from the 64 hexagrams of the ancient I Ching, and as such, it represents the Chinese cosmology in the mythical past. The spherical arrangement clearly represents the unity and the completeness of the world. It's all about Yin and Yang.

 

I also found some interesting links:
