John Robinson's sculpture FIRMAMENT was given to Professor Coxeter as a birthday present from Robinson by Ronnie Brown at the Fields Institute. The top sphere comes apart into two halves and now contains Donald's letter to John describing the mathematics of the sculpture. The sculpture was later donated by Professor Coxeter to York University.
