Reconstruction of the
Nun's Walk 4-08-2019 formation

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

2. Construct the inscribed square of circle 1, with horizontal and vertical sides.

3. Construct four inscribed equilateral triangles of circle 1, each pointing to one of the angular points of square 2.

4. Draw twelve rays of circle 1, to the angular points of triangles 3. Number these rays clockwise 1 - 12, starting at the top right.

5. Construct the inscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, by connecting all consecutive end-points of rays 4.

6. Construct the inscribed circle of dodecagon 5.

7. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 6, pointing up.

8. Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 7.

9. Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 8, pointing up.

10. Construct the inscribed circle of triangle 9.

11. Copy circle 10 to the righthand intersection of circle 8 and the horizontal centerline.

12. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 11 at the righthand side.

13. Draw two connecting lines, between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 6 and ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 12, and the other between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 6 and ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 12.

14. Repeat step 13 eleven times, for all other pairs of adjacent rays 4.

15. Draw two connecting lines, between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 12 and ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 8, and the other between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 12 and ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 8.

16. Repeat step 15 eleven times, for all other pairs of adjacent rays 4.

17. Draw two connecting lines, between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 8 and ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 10, and the other between the intersections of ray 4 nr. 4 and circle 8 and ray 4 nr. 3 and circle 10.

18. Repeat step 17 eleven times, for all other pairs of adjacent rays 4.

19. Circles 1, 6, 8, 10, and 12, and lines 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18, are used for the final reconstruction.

20. Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself.
