Reconstruction of the
Chute Causeway 26-07-2007 formation

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

2. Construct the inscribed pentagon (regular 5-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing down.

3. Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 1, and passing through the upper lefthand and righthand angular points of pentagon 2.

4. Construct the inscribed pentagon of circle 3, pointing up.

5. Construct the inscribed pentagram (regular 5-pointed star) of circle 3, by drawing all diagonals of pentagon 4.

6. Construct the circumscribed circle of the pentagon enclosed by pentagram 5, as shown.

7. Construct the circumscribed pentagon of circle 6, pointing up.

8. Construct the inscribed circle of pentagon 4.

9. Construct a "two-points" circle, defined by the end-points of a centerline, with one point at the upper intersection of circle 6 and the vertical centerline, the other point at the top of pentagon 7.

10. Copy circle 9 to the upper intersection of circle 8 and the vertical centerline.

11. Construct a circle concentric to circle 8, tangent to circle 10 at the lower side.

12. Extend all sides of pentagon 7 in both directions up to circle 8.

13. Copy circle 9 four times, to the four upper intersections of circle 11 and lines 12.

14. Copy circle 9 another six times, to all other intersections of circle 11 and lines 12.

15. Copy pentagram 5 and circles 13 and 14 as a whole from its lower lefthand to its upper righthand angular point, as shown.

16. Copy pattern 15 (pentagram and circles) from its upper lefthand to its upper righthand angular point.

17. Copy pattern 15 from its lower righthand angular point to its top.

18. Copy pattern 16 from its lower lefthand angular point to its top.

19. Copy pattern 17 from its lower lefthand to its upper righthand angular point.

20. Patterns 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19 make up the upper righthand part of the formation; remove all (inner) elements not present in the formation.

21. Copy pattern 20 four times, and distribute them, while rotating, evenly around pentagon 2, to the corresponding positions with respect to its angular points, as shown.

22. Copy pentagram 5 and circles 13 as a whole four times, and distribute them, while rotating, evenly around the center of circle 1, to the corresponding positions with respect to the sides of pentagon 2, as shown.

23. Copy circle 9 to the top of the pentagon enclosed by pentagrams 5 and 22, as shown.

24. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 23 at the lower side.

25. Construct the circumscribed pentagon of circle 24, pointing down.

26. Copy circle 9 five times, to the angular points of pentagon 25.

27. Pentagram 5, circles 13 and 26, and patterns 20, 21 and 22, are used for the final reconstruction.

28. Remove all superfluous parts, not present in the formation itself.
