Sacred Geometry 3
Metatron's cube and artistic variations on it like this one, contain complex sacred geometries, like the five platonic solids, opening the doorways of the mind to underlying natural symmetries. Though the form's roots may be ancient, the Metatron's cube still finds relevance in spiritual symbolism today.
A hexagon is created by Metatron's cube, and this polygon can also be found in naturally occurring phenomena, such as the Giant's Causeway in Ireland, honeycombs, beta quartz crystals, the polar cloud formation of Saturn, and the hexagonal fossil of the Paleodictyon nodosum, suggesting deeper systems of mathematical or vibrational order within the universe.
As a symbol, the Metatron's cube, like a map, can indicate many destinations. To which corner of reality will you explore? Or will you engage yourself with the whole?
