Mol­ecules of the title compound, C34H38N4O2, lie across crystallographic inversion centres. The crystal packing can be described by alternating zigzag chains along the c axis in which the molecules are linked by van der Waals interactions. There is an intra­molecular O—H⋯N hydrogen bond and the two benzene rings in the asymmetric unit make a dihedral angle of 79.81 (6)°.
