This piece is inspired by the Roman Dodecahedron. An object of unknown purpose and great mystery. This could be a display object or desk buddy, strong enough to be handled. This iteration of the idea is a hollow self-supporting object that is large enough to put a small treasure or note inside and keep it safe forever. What secrets will yours hold?
