Reconstruction of the
Westbury White Horse 4-08-2016 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 up.

3. Copy circle 1 to the top of hexagon 2.

4. Copy circle 1 to the lower angular point of hexagon 2.

5. Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the righthand side of hexagon 2 and the horizontal centerline, tangent to circle 1 at the righthand side.

6. Copy circle 5 to the center of circle 1.

7. Construct a circle centered at the upper righthand angular point of hexagon 2, tangent to circle 6 at the upper righthand side.

8. Copy circle 7 to the lower righthand angular point of hexagon 2.

9. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the lefthand intersection of circles 7 and 8.

10. Construct a circle concentric to circle 3, passing through the lower righthand intersection of circles 4 and 7.

11. Copy circle 10 to the center of circle 4.

12. Draw the connecting line between the center of circle 1 and the lower intersection of circle 10 and the vertical centerline. Divide this line into nine equal parts.

13. Construct eight circles concentric to circle 3, passing through the division nodes 12.

14. Copy circles 13 to the center of circle 4.

15. Copy circle 7 to the top of hexagon 2.

16. Construct a circle enclosed by and tangent to circles 8, 9, and 15.

17. Copy circle 16 to the top of hexagon 2.

18. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 17 at the upper side.

19. Create the shown pattern, by removing all parts not visible within the formation itself from circles 1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, and 14.

20. Copy pattern 19 five times (by repeating all necessary steps), while rotating around the center of circle 1, each 60° apart, as shown.

21. Circles 6, 9, and 18, and patterns 19, and 20, make up the final reconstruction.
