Reconstruction of the
Watership Down 11-08-2021 formation

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

2. Draw the connecting line between the center of circle 1 and its righthand intersection with the horizontal centerline. Divide this line into eleven equal parts. Number the dividing nodes 1 - 10, from left to right.

3. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 1.

4. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 2.

5. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 3.

6. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 4.

7. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 5.

8. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 6.

9. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 7.

10. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 8.

11. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 9.

12. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through node 2 nr. 10.

13. Copy circle 11 to the upper intersection of circle 12 and the vertical centerline.

14. Copy circle 11 to the upper intersection of circle 13 and the vertical centerline, and move this circle (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection.

15. Copy circle 10 to the center of circle 14.

16. Copy circle 7 to the center of circle 14.

17. Copy circles 3, 4, 5, and 6, to the center of circle 14.

18. Draw two parallel lines, parallel to the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 3 and corresponding circle 17, at both sides.

19. Draw four parallel lines, parallel to the vertical centerline, tangent to circles 4 and 5 and corresponding circles 17, at both sides, and extend these lines downto circle 1.

20. Draw four parallel lines, parallel to the vertical centerline, tangent to circles 6 and 7, and to circle 16 and corresponding circle 17, at both sides.

21. Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 1 and the vertical centerline, tangent to circle 12 at the upper side.

22. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 21 at the upper side.

23. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 22 and the inner lines 19, and extend this line onto the outer lines 19 in both directions.

24. Construct a circle concentric to circle 21, tangent to circle 11 at the upper side.

25. Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 24 at the upper side.

26. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 25 and the inner lines 20, and extend this line onto the outer lines 20 in both directions.

27. Copy circle 12 to the center of circle 14.

28. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 27 and the inner lines 19, and extend this line onto the outer lines 19 in both directions.

29. Copy circle 1 to the center of circle 14.

30. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 29 and the inner lines 20, and extend this line onto the outer lines 20 in both directions.

31. Circles 1, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, and 16, and lines 18, 19, 20, 23, 26, 28, and 30, are used for the final reconstruction.

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