Eye of Providence Pyramid Paper Toy
This paper toy based on the Pyra:Minds template takes its imagery from the Great Seal of the United States which appears on the back of the US one dollar bill. The eye at the top of the pyramid was referred to by the creators of the seal as "The Eye of Providence". Despite modern day Freemasonry's efforts to set the record straight, urban legends still abound that the pyramid is either a Masonic or an Illuminati symbol. Be that as it may, it still makes a nice companion to my Masonic Medallion papercraft. ^^ The template for the pyramid was created in 2009 by illustrator Maximiliano Garcia Luna of Argentina and may be found here. I achieved the hovering eye effect in my build with a carefully placed toothpick.
