Description Egg tempera and real gold leaf. The underlying geometry of this design is the subdivided square - One square nested inside another, inside another. The design grows from the constant division of the initial square. This can be seen as a metaphor for the physical transformation of matter. It can represent growth from and proliferation of the initial source, but also a return to it.
