Although the main challenge of creating the metatronic solids was applying knot patterns to regular polyhedra, each face was interesting itself.
The first iteration of the faces was the hexahedron. I thought would be fun to use the face of a hexahedron, a square, to create a cube, but by stacking copies of the face instead of rotating them along their edges.
For the next version I focused on just one face, a triangle from a tetrahedron. I used gold leaf poles to elevate the shape off of the background.
The radial lines in the knot design were emphasized by darker wood in the background.
The dodecahedron face, a pentagon has many more radial lines. They were inlaid with a contrasting wood.
