Reconstruction of theWest Kennett 13-07-2004 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Copy circle 1 to its lower intersection with the vertical centerline. | ||||

3. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 2 at the lower side. | ||||

4. |
Construct the circumscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, one side up, as shown. | ||||

5. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of dodecagon 4. | ||||

6. |
Copy circle 3 to the upper intersection of circle 5 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 3 to the lower intersection of circle 6 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

8. |
Construct the circumscribed dodecagon of circle 7, one side up, as shown. | ||||

9. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of dodecagon 8. | ||||

10. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon of circle 3, pointing up. | ||||

11. |
Construct the inscribed circle of dodecagon 10. | ||||

12. |
Construct the circumscribed regular 36-sided polygon of circle 3, one side up, such that the midpoint of that side lies on the vertical centerline. | ||||

13. |
Draw the 36 rays, from the center of circle 3 to all angular points of polygon 12. | ||||

14. |
Circles 1, 3, 7, 9 and 11, and lines 13 make up all necessary constituents for the reconstruction. | ||||
