It's a good thing I make something else entirely , that people actually pay me for,
because I've sure spent a lot of time on things like these (and  fractals) , that nobody
 wants to buy  :thumbs:  So, like music, I do them because I love to, because
 I have to   :yes:

i've heard that positioning yourself inside the double tetrahedron thing can have benefits for the health or something.

Aka the 'Star Tetrahedron' or 'Merkaba' (aka 'ascension chariot' ) . I don't know about any of it. It was a fun challenge to build the big one. One interesting thing did happen inside it once when we were out sitting in it one night. Wife was meditating , I was
"meditating" (jammin' with headphones on, thinking about not-thinking  :fp: )  and after a while I looked up and saw that an owl had landed on the apex, a couple of feet above our heads . Power bird decent-ion chair-iot  ;).

The curved-wire ones are all based on simple polyhedral , mutated into curved line figures . The vertices of the central balls
are those of the simple ploys . Making the edges curved transforms the faces into circles (usually) and the whole figure goes spherical.

Yeah, I heard about the effects during meditation too, but I don't know what to make of it, really. I created a sierpinski merkaba myself for my shapeways shop (with free download): https://www.shapeways.com/product/SFZVCLE6N/sierpinski-merkaba-ii-16-cm. It's suppossed to have some pretty interesting energetic properties as well, but I don't really know cause I never printed it.

Your work is beautiful, keep it up!

Oh, I like that !   I made the brass merkaba and  3 Octahedra   from 1mm thick sheet , so they're hollow.
I saw the 3 -Octa in an Escher print and thought "y'know, it's not that much harder than the 2-tetrahedra" .
That was about 40 years ago. Nobody had pc's, and ...well, it was the Stone Age compared to now  (maybe
 the Brass Age ).  It's really amazing what can be done now  :thumbs:
