Ancient mathematics concerned itself with shapes, numbers and their relations, at rest and in motion. Not until modern geometry were shapes replaced by space. In this article I deal with the late thought of Petr Vopěnka: the return to shapes, intuition and his reflection of the history of mathematics in connection with phenomenological philosophy. I point to how, in his approach, shape conveys that which is beyond the horizon. Last but not least, I explore the relation of the mathematical and of shape to the phenomenality of the face, body and the other.
