Fresnel Lenses at the Guggenheim
Sangaku is the Japanese word for unique, wooden,
mathematical tablets created during the Edo period
(1603-1867) in Japan - a period when all Western
influences were shunned. In short, they involved
some seriously crazy math problems which equally
crazy math geeks (albeit honourable ancient
Japanese samurai-type math geeks) worked on and
challenged each other with. Think The Last Samurai
meets A Beautiful Mind and crossed with sudoku.
This jewelry is beautiful!
