Four to the Power of Three

The box, the container, the basic unit of organization is also the symbol of symbols.

Modeled after traditional wooden toolboxes and made of poplar, this box was created to hold my treasured drawing tools and inspire me to continue drawing.

To visualize the design precisely, I used another box, a computer containing a virtual geometric visualization software application.

Indus Tree

The name Jupiter, (from Ioveiter, meaning sky walker), also known as Jove (Iove), is the source of the Hebrew YHWH.

Juan and Ivan are essentially the same name, derived from Iove. Since Latin does not have the letters J and U, Juan is spelled Ivan, or Iovan, which is where the Italian Giovanni and anglicized John are derived from.

The man known as John the Baptist (Anointer), son of the Magister of the Arval Brethren (Brothers of the Tree), was a human avatar of the being known as God. Christianity stands on his word.

In addition to being a wonderful toy, the dollhouse is a symbol of human industry. This one was built from a clever kit produced commercially.
