Happy Pi day from the Ozols Collection ! We thought this masterpiece of painting and geometry entitled Disciples, by Auseklis Ozols might be fitting as we consider celebrating numbers and their relationship to aesthetics and beauty.
“Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159. Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to celebrate…”
Ozols offered regular bi-annual lectures on sacred geometry and its influence on the history of art during his 50 years of teaching. He demonstrated and drew the relationships by hand on a wall in front of an audience of students, patrons, collectors and peers. These events were always packed and filled with excitement as AO would carefully begin his enormous drawings with a hand carved mahogany compass about the length of his own arm.
Ozols continues to offer these lectures by special arrangement and invitation on an annual basis. Please contact us for more information.
