SYMBOLIC INK | METATRON’S CUBE












Sacred geometry is the geometry used in the planning and construction of religious structures such as churches, temples, mosques, religious monuments, altars, tabernacles; as well as for sacred spaces such as temenoi, sacred groves, village greens and holy wells, and the creation of religious art.

In sacred geometry, symbolic and sacred meanings are ascribed to certain geometric shapes and certain geometric proportions.


 









The belief that God created the universe according to a geometric plan has ancient origins












Many forms observed in nature can be related to geometry, for example, honeybees construct hexagonal cells to hold their honey


METATRONS CUBE is a name for a geometric figure composed of 13 equal circles with lines from the center of each circle extending out to the centers of the other 12 circles


Metatron’s Cube contains every shape that exists within the universe. Those shapes are the building blocks of all physical matter, which are known as Platonic solids. The shapes represent the patterns that make up everything God has made


Metatrons Cube can be formed from the fruit of life symbol, by using the points of the intersection to make the symbol geometrically correct


In Christianity, Judaism & Islam, Archangel Metatron is said to be one of the most powerful angels in heaven. It is testimony to this power, that Metatrons was allowed to be seated in heaven, a privilege only reserved for God. It was his job as scribe, to record the history and deeds of mankind and oversee the flow of energy in a mystical cube


Early Kabbalistic documents state that Metatron formed this cube from his soul










Apart from its geometric & religious significance, the cube is a said to be a powerful symbol of protection, able to keep away demons and other unwanted influences. This is perhaps one of the reasons why people get it inked onto their skin









I often use sacred geometry within my work (Tattooed leather art, custom art or ready to wear flash art)
