The Platonic Solids include the icosahedron (top left), the dodecahedron(top right), the tetrahedron (above center), the octahedron (below center), and the cube (photo forthcoming, featuring planet earth on one panel and a tree of life on a second side).  They are beautiful shapes, are considered a symbolic fundamental shape, and they are associated with the mystical or symbolic elements, each tied to a different element, sort of like an ancient divine programming language.  Shuffle the elements around and use them with various ritual, and the idea is that you can move worlds.  Meditate on the shapes and call in the qualities associated with them.  For example, icosahedron is associated with water, with flow, with cleansing, and therefore also with blood, the water of our body.  Try a bit of Platonic Solid elemental ritual on for size.   Perhaps these paintings can help.
