Most Stars of David, however, are flat, as though they were stamped out of sheet metal. Even the ones that look as though they are composed of two intertwined triangles still have that flat appearance. So the Star of David was pretty much calling for Ivaan to rescue it from mediocrity. It is often beautifully rendered on paper or on textile, but it's something that needs to be three dimensional when made in metal.
So Ivaan modelled his Star of David on the shape of a chicken wishbone. Not duplicated slavishly, but capturing that sinuous shape.
