Metatron’s Cube - Mythically speaking, Metatron was originally human, elevated to archangel by God for his services as scribe. He was considered to be the foremost communicator between humans and the divine. Metatron is best known for his ‘cube’ which is derived from the Fruit of Life, which are thirteen circles concealed in the ancient Flower of Life found inscribed on the walls of the Osirion temple at Abydos, Egypt and throughout many ancient cultures. The centers of each of these thirteen circles are then all connected to each other to form Metatron’s Cube and it is from this pattern that all of the “Platonic Solids” can be formed which are the building blocks of all life.
Please, take a look at the video just to see how sparkling these pendants are in real life (sorry for Russian language :-)) We are working on the English version
Metatron’s Cube and The Platonic Solids Sacred Geometry structure - ”Metatron’s Cube”, is derived from the ancient structure of the Flower of Life. It is named after the Archangel Metatron. Metatron appears in Jewish tradition, Christian tradition, and in some aspects of Islam. Metatron is in charge of all of creation and is considered an Archangel as well as a judge
Since very ancient times, it has been believed that God created the entire cosmos according to a specific geometric plan. Sacred Geometry refers to the geometric shapes, patterns, frequencies, proportions, ratios and laws that have been observed to underlie the organic life forms, objects and phenomenon occurring anywhere in the universe.
People have always held the symbols of Sacred Geometry holy and tried to use them to understand the divine truths behind all existence. One of these revered figures is the Metatron’s Cube.
What is Metatron’s Cube Metatron’s Cube is the name given to a complex three-dimensional geometric figure made from 13 circles of the same size, with lines extending from the center of every circle to the center of all the other twelve circles. It is considered a geometric variant of the ‘Fruit of Life' symbol that is, in turn, derived from the Flower of Life, a powerful Sacred Geometry symbol believed to hold all the patterns of creation.
Metatron’s Cube and the 5 Platonic Solids Metatron’s Cube is said to contain the five key sacred patterns or shapes that make up all matter in this universe. Known as the Platonic Solids, these shapes are Star Tetrahedron, Hexahedron, Octahedron, Dodecahedron and Icosahedron.
The Platonic Solids are called the perfect solids because in each of them, every face has equal side length, equal face size and equal angle. Moreover, all these figures fit perfectly within a sphere.
The five Platonic Solids are regarded as the building blocks of the universe and equated with the five elements with which everything is made – fire, earth, air, aether and water.
Star Tetrahedron – Fire The Star Tetrahedron symbolizes the element of Fire. Made of two tetrahedrons (triangular pyramids), the Star Tetrahedron is a sharp figure that corresponds with the sharp and piercing heat of fire. Its uniform shape also makes it symbolic of harmony, equilibrium, stability and balance.
Hexahedron – Earth The Hexahedron represents the element of Earth. It is shaped as a cube and with its regular & straight lines, it is symbolic of solidity and firmness that are the key characteristics of the Earth. Moreover, the Hexahedron sits flat and firmly rooted, just like the earth.
Octahedron – Air The Octahedron is symbolic of the element of Air. The Octahedron has a smooth shape made of eight equilateral triangles which can be equated with the minuscule components of Air that are so smooth that they can hardly be felt.
Dodecahedron – Aether The Dodecahedron is associated with Aether, a unique element of the heavens, sky or space. Aether is regarded as the fifth crucial element that combines with the other four classical elements of fire, earth, air and water to make up everything in the universe.
Icosahedron – Water The Icosahedron is equated with the element of Water. The Icosahedron is made of 20 equilateral triangles and is the Platonic Solid with the maximum number of faces. Its smooth and even figure is seen as an apt symbol for water that smoothly flows away when one attempts to pick it up.
As the five essential elements, the five Platonic Solids are considered very crucial to creation. And, by virtue of having the Platonic Solids encompassed within itself, the Metatron’s Cube becomes a symbol of universal unity and inter-connectedness.
