flower cubes

Metatron’s cube depicts the five platonic solids which may be derived form the flower of life. The five platonic solids are geometrical forms which are said to act as a template from which all life springs, according to spiritual belief. The Platonic solids are five structures that are crucial because they are the building blocks of organic life. These five structures are found in minerals, animated and organic life forms, sound, music, language, etc. Metatron’s cube is also considered a holy glyph, used to ward off evil spirits. The Kabbalah’s Tree of life is also thought to be derived from the flower of life. The photo is an installation called ‘Intersections’ by Anila Quayyum Agha, who laser-cut black lacquer wood cube suspended from the ceiling and lit with a single light bulb that casts breathtaking 32-ft-by-34-ft shadows to create instant architecture in an otherwise empty room.

Metatron’s Cube, called ‘The Fruit Of Life,’ is a complex 3D pattern that contains all 5 of the Platonic solids. The spheres of Metatron’s Cube represent the ‘Feminine’ whilst the straight lines represent the ‘Masculine.’ Thus Metatron’s Cube represents the weaving together of the Male & Female polarities.
