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

2. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing down. | ||||

4. |
Construct a circle, passing through the top of triangle 2, and passing through the lefthand and righthand intersections of triangles 2 and 3. | ||||

5. |
Copy circle 4 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

6. |
Draw the connecting line between the upper intersections of circle 5 with the lefthand side of triangle 2 and the righthand side of triangle 3. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 6. | ||||

8. |
Draw the connecting line between the top of triangle 2 and the intersection of its lower side with the lefthand side of triangle 3. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of line 8 and the horizontal centerline, passing through the upper intersection of circle 7 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

11. |

12. |
Construct two circumscribed equilateral triangles of circle 7, one pointing to the left, one to the right. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the angular points of triangles 11. | ||||

14. |
Draw the three diagonals of the hexagram (regular six-pointed star) made up by triangles 12, as shown. | ||||

15. |
Draw the three diagonals of the hexagon (regular six-sided polygon) enclosed by triangles 12, as shown. | ||||

16. |
Circles 1 and 13, triangles 11 and 12, and diagonals 14 and 15, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||
