The Chestahedron is the first heptahedron of this configuration in the history of geometry. This sculpture has 7 surfaces (consisting of 4 triangles and 3 quadrilaterals), 7 points and 12 edges. If this heptahedron is rotated around the vertical axis, it forms a bell-like external surface of a certain profile: a cone at the top connected to a hyperbolic at the bottom. Other type heptahedra, or less-faced polyhedra do not provide a bell-type figure. For this reason it is supposed that the Chestahedron in rotation is the first geometrical bell shape form ever found and therefore it is the first time the mystery behind the geometry of the bell has been solved in the history of bell making. It has been found in years of research that this geometry is the basis of the left ventricle of the human heart. The midway point between the idea of the human heart and the manifestation of the human heart. Naming the Chestahedron came from the heart being the dominant organ in the chest.
It is a strong and beautiful pyramid-shaped form. Each sculpture is signed by Frank Chester, the discoverer. The sculpture is unique because there are no molds used in its production.
Each sculpture is painstakingly hand-made by Frank to his exacting standards, both of beauty and of geometrical perfection. This “objective art” is far more than something nice to look at: it is the meeting of form and spirit in a physical substance.
