Wood Dodecahedron Sculpture (woven-2)

These are great table top or hanging decor pieces for 1950s “Atomic Age” Mid Century Modern houses. They were common plastic or wood light fixtures in the classic 1950s “Googie” coffee shops.This is a Dodecahedron formed by 60 inter-woven pieces of wood. They form 12 small pentagons on each flat plane, and 12 great pentagons that wrap around the 5 adjacent planes. Each intersection is a compound miter notch cut only halfway thru the wood so the 2 pieces press together with a friction fit, similar to how Lincoln Logs nest together in their notches. I have more pieces like these on my website with alot more to come!
