About this Product

The five platonic solids are Octahedron; Tetrahedron; Regular Hexahedron (commonly called a cube - because all the faces are the same size); Dodecahedron; Icosahedron. 

The Platonic solids were known to the ancient Greeks, and were described by Plato in his Timaeus c. 350 BC. In this work, Plato equated the tetrahedron with the "element" fire, the cube with earth, the icosahedron with water, the octahedron with air, and the dodecahedron with the stuff of which the constellations and heavens were made.
