Dogma & Catma

A 32 planed truncated icosahedron with a different miniature oil painting on each surface. Then, when you peer thru the portal, you'll see an infinite library with tiny little books whose titles, if you can read them, are oxymorons, palindromes and word plays. Carefully placed mirrors, reverse perspective, fiber optics and other odd materials make this a cabinet de curiosité that may kill the catma but thinking outside Pandora's box, you may wonder who let the dogma out. Constructed of masonite and semi- transparent lexan with a Nikon non- glare filter set into the gold-leafed molded epoxy portal. At the bottom is a standard tripod-camera mounting bracket.

My goodness!...This is so fascinating! And beautiful art work too! I sure would love to watch your work in progress! If it didn't cost so much...I'd take A dozen! LOL! Just kidding! I realize how much hard work..talent..and uniqueness that must have gone in to this masterpiece!

Artist Reply: Au contrare Joanne, I whip a dozen o' these babies out in an afternoon... Kidding too! Actually I spend about 200 hours all told, painting, assembling, guess and checking the optical illusions so they look just right from the viewing hole which isn't in place yet at that point. So you're right, but if you're really interested (Shh! don't tell anyone: contact me and we can work out a deal for you. ... Oops!)
