Matrix of Dirt

This new sphere is 14” diameter. The theme of this design has the dicotyledon form of seeds that go into the ground, joined together by the star form found when one cuts through the circumference of an apple. There are three basic geometric grids that define the spaces. They are dictated by the truncatedicosahedron geometric solid .     What is dirt? What activities are going on under the soils surface? Winters hibernation process prepares the simple seed for its next stage.  Energy and growth, both unseen until sunlight and water cast their spells every spring. I can see this same process taking place within myself as I move through the years cycles.
