Artist's Description

This image was inspired by the remarkable work of John Martineau, in “A Little Book of Coincidence”. With tiled planes of solar and lunar motifs in the background, a dodecahedron (12 pentagons, Plato’s symbol for ether or spirit) defines 20 spheres (the metallic looking ones) that exactly touch. Inside these are the orbit of Venus (green) and outside all is the orbit of Mars (faint red). See: www.GeometryCode.com for details. I think John Martineau’s name will (some day, hopefully soon!) be heralded among Kepler, Galileo, Newton and Einstein for the astronomical discoveries he’s made. Here’s a link to John’s book if you haven’t seen it (HIGHLY recommended): www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0802713882/inte... (Created with POV-Ray http://www.povray.org)
