DESIGN MEANING: Metatrons

Enoch metatron's cube erin cadigan

Enoch turns into Metatron

The sacred geometry symbol in this design is Metatron’s cube. Inherent in the cube are the five platonic solids. Platonic solids are congurent regular polygons. A regular polygon is a three dimmensional shape whose angles are all the same and whose sides are all equal. What makes them congruent is that their faces are all the same size and shape as well. The five Platonic Solids implied by the two dimensional Metatron’s cube are: Star Tetrahedron, Hexadron (cube), Octahedron, Dodecahedron, and Icosahedron.

The prophet Enoch is seen driving a fiery chariot into the the symbol. Enoch was the great-grandfather of Noah and the seventh generational decendent of Adam and Eve. He is written about in the Biblical book of Genesis and The New Testament as well as in the Book of Enoch, Enoch2 (Slavonic), and in one of the Dead Sea Scrolls known as Enoch 3. It is said in these historic accounts that Enoch never died. According to the records Enoch lived on Earth 365 years and was accended to Heaven with out ever dying. The records state that Enoch accended into Heaven and was returned bodily to Earth on several occassions before the final time he was taken up. The horses and fiery chariot is a reference to the specifics of the prophet Elijah’s ascension as the method of Enochs ascension is never described. The chariot itself is a reference to the “Winged Disk” motif found through out the ancient Middle East.

In Enoch 1 and Enoch 2 it is stated that Enoch was transformed into the angel Metatron before the face of God.  This creates for the Earthly Enoch a heavenly counter-part or twin, making him to be both Enoch and Metatron at once. In both Enoch 2 and Enoch 3 the “face of God” is described as a face of fire, “a glorious brilliance”.  Later Merkabah accounts catagorize Metatron as the Face of God. Medieval Jewish mystical texts refer to Metatron as the scribe of God, an angel of the highest power, who is the only angel allowed to sit in the presence of the Lord. He is seated to the right, behind the throne of God.

“This Enoch whose flesh was turned to flame, his veins to fire, his eyelashes to flashes of lightening, his eye balls to flaming torches and who God placed on a throne next to the throne of glory, recieved after this heavenly transformation the name of Metatron.

–Enoch 3
