Genesis

Genesis by John Robinson, at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences

"For GENESIS I used three rhombuses. The rhombus is thought to be the Celtic symbil of fertility. Each rhombus is giving birth to another one, as it is being born itself. I think, of the three sculptures, it represents the most harmonious concept of Gestalt. It is also a three-dimensional Star of David." John Robinson

You can see another edition of this sculpture, and more information, at the University of Bangor's site .
