Platonic solids;

The mystical Dodecahedron

 In Plato’s dialogue with Timaeus,

each one of the elements is linked to a certain Platonic solid:

the element of earth would be a cube,

of air an octahedron, of water an icosahedron,

and of fire a tetrahedron.

The fifth element (i.e. Platonic solid) was the dodecahedron,

and was taken to represent the shape of the Universe as a whole.

Quintessence, literally ’fifth essence’, refers to (A)ether, the fifth element, that fills the universe beyond the terrestrial sphere.

Unravel creates a series of mystifying formations, emerging from the Dodecahedron.
