Can we really trust what our eyes see? Was Plato right saying we are living in a world of shadow?

Many questions Id rather answer in a more direct - and esthetic way - And if it provides ground for further intellectual inquiry, I am glad my art entertained your philosophical and scientific curiosity as well...

"Wasan" geometry or traditional Japanese mathematics flourished under the Tokugawa shogunate around the Edo period and expressed itself in a unique way through mathematical votive pictures called San Gaku, written in formal Sino-Japanese language and displayed in temples and public places. Beautiful wooden tablets of many sizes and shapes would outline in pleasant and colorful way mathematical problems mostly left for the viewer to solve. This tradition slowly disappeared and today less than a thousand Sangaku have survived abandon or destruction.
