The modern design and unique light/shadow of the Open Dodecahedron Tea Light Holder is a perfect addition to my decor. I love it!

I was fascinated by this unique design, reminding me of my youth when I used to construct cardboard polyhedra. It looks great on my bookshelf alongside my Klein bottle, Mobius strip and Menger sponge. The delivery was very prompt despite all lockdown issues. Usually I have to go outside the UK to purchase mathematical objects so I'll definitely visit this shop again.

I am very happy with the item and Michael is a very nice person. The 1st parcel didn't arrive and so he replaced it. Thank you so much for your kindness and good service, Michael. ♡ All the best!
