Reconstruction of the2001 Avebury Trusloe formation |
|||||

1. |
Draw a circle. Draw the horizontal and vertical centerlines. | ||||

2. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (6-sided regular polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the circumscribed hexagon of circle 1, also pointing to the right. | ||||

5. |
Construct the circumscribed hexagon of hexagon 4, pointing up. | ||||

6. |
Construct the circumscribed hexagon of hexagon 5, again pointing to the right. | ||||

7. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of hexagon 6. | ||||

8. |
Extend the horizontal and vertical centerlines of circle 1 up to circle 7. Draw the other diagonals of hexagon 6. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 7 to the intersection on the right of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

10. |
Repeat this for the intersections of circle 3 with the other rays of hexagon 6. | ||||

11. |
Cut off all parts of circles 9 and 10 outside the shown mutual intersections, such that six arcs remain. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle, centered at the intersection on the right of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline (thus concentric to circle 9), passing through the intersections of the vertical centerline and hexagon 6. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 12 to the intersections of circle 3 with the other rays of hexagon 6. | ||||

14. |
Cut off all parts of circles 12 and 13, except for the arcs between the indicated intersections of these circles and arcs 11. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle, concentric to circle 1, passing through the common end-points of arcs 11. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 1 to the shown intersection on the left of the horizontal centerline and arcs 11. | ||||

17. |
Copy circle 15 to the intersection on the right of circle 16 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

18. |
Construct a circle, concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 17 at the far end. | ||||

19. |
Construct a circle, centered at the intersection on the right of circle 3 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 18 at the near side. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 19 to the intersection on the right of circle 15 and the horizontal centerline. | ||||

21. |
Construct a circle, concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 20 at the far end. | ||||

22. |
Circles 1, 18 and 21, and arcs 11 and 14 form all necessary parts for the reconstruction. | ||||

23. |
Removing all unused parts and making black areas corresponding to standing crop finish the reconstruction of the 2001 Avebury Trusloe formation. | ||||
