Reconstruction of theBishop Cannings 24-05-2009 formation | |||||

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

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

3. |
Create a "Flower-of-life" pattern, by copying circle 1 six times, to the angular points of hexagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct a second inscribed hexagon of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

5. |
Construct the circumscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, the midpoint of one side coincident with the righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. | ||||

6. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of dodecagon 5. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 6 six times, to the angular points of hexagon 4. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the upper intersection of rightmost circle 3 and upper lefthand circle 7. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the upper intersection of upper lefthand and upper righthand circles 7. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 to the rightmost angular point of hexagon 2. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle centered at the leftmost angular point of hexagon 2, tangent to circle 10 at the lefthand side. | ||||

12. |
Copy circle 10 eleven times, to the other angular points of hexagon 2 and all angular points of hexagon 4. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 11 eleven times, to the other angular points of hexagon 2 and all angular points of hexagon 4. | ||||

14. |
Circles 1, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 are used in the final steps. | ||||

15. |
Remove all redundant parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

16. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

17. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Bishop Cannings formation of 24-05-2009. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
