Symphony of metal

polyhedrons inside a metal ball

Metal processing is a very complex process. But there are masters who can cut out polyhedrons from metal inside another geometric body.
Welcome to the "highest league" of creativity!

Rafil Shagapov shared with us a great collection. And sent photos of his work.
Each of them is made of metal on a lathe. All Platonic solids are machined inside the ball.
The exhibition is called "Symphony of Metal".
