Venus And Mars Per Martineau

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 Mar (faint red). Visit the GeometryCode site for more info.

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. Check out John’s book (A Little Book of Coincidence) if you haven’t seen it (HIGHLY recommended.) This image was created with POV-Ray.

This image is available as a wide variety of apparel, prints/posters (with a variety of framing options), and notecards.
