Siracusa's name is drawn from the Italian city known as Syracuse. It is an excellent representation of the cuboctahedral style, with triangles and squares dominating the geometric design of its exterior. The lid rises above the piece to break the spherical plane, making Siracusa look less like a perfect orb and more like a vessel. The concave interior shows design elements which are more circular than the angular designs of its outside surface, yet the two represent different versions of the same embedded design.
