about this work
From the viewpoint of the Earth, the eight years orbit of Venus around the Sun draws a
pentagram in the sky. The most ancient and perfect geometric figure, the polygon
which is most similar to the shape of the human body, generates the golden ratio: an
important theorem of formal beauty. Pentagrams enter the human society as
reminiscent symbols. They create, symbolize and imply the history which is almost
related to all guardian wishes that need cohesion energy. The work is a start with this
orbit of Venus.
