5. MU-MAGARI No.5: Self Standing Six-Axes Chiral Lattice
(c)1998 Akio HIZUME

We decrease the number of bamboo a lot this time. We lattice it with 180 pieces. The bamboos support each other very tightly. It is amazing that they are very flexible from any other power outside. Even if it changes, it recover easily, and never destroy. The star cage is consist of 6 axes and full with the golden mean. The shadow is dense and subtle, and has the diffused reflection of lights and sounds. You see a beautiful square pentagon or hexagon. It depends on the direction. The center is the round dome. An adult could get in it if 6m bamboos are used. It might be a good idea for an architecture for the Japanese tea ceremony room.
