|||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon (regular 5-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct five inscribed equilateral triangles of circle 1, each with one angular point coincident with a consecutive angular point of pentagon 2, creating a regular 15-pointed star. | ||||

4. |
Construct the circumscribed regular 15-sided polygon of circle 1, pointing down, so that the midpoint of each side coincides with one angular point of triangles 3. | ||||

5. |
Construct the circumscribed regular 15-sided polygon of polygon 4, pointing up, so that the midpoint of each side coincides with one angular point of polygon 4. | ||||

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

7. |
Draw the 15 rays from the center of circle 1 to the angular points of polygon 5. Count the rays 1 to 15 counterclockwise, starting at the uppermost ray, as shown. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of circle 6 and ray 7 nr. 1, passing through the intersections of circle 1 and rays 7 nrs. 2 and 15, as shown. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

10. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 9 and rays 7 nrs. 7 and 10. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 10. | ||||

12. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circle 11 and rays 7 nrs. 3 and 14. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 12. | ||||

14. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of circle 11 and ray 7 nr. 1, tangent to rays 7 nrs. 2 and 15. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 14 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

16. |
Construct a circle centered at the lower intersection of circle 14 and ray 7 nr. 1, tangent to rays 7 nrs. 2 and 15. | ||||

17. |
Copy circle 16 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

18. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of circle 9 and ray 7 nr. 1, passing through the intersections of circle 13 and rays 7 nrs. 2 and 15. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 18 fifteen times, to the endpoints of all rays 7. | ||||

20. |
Draw the connecting line between the intersections of the uppermost circle 19 and circle 6. | ||||

21. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of line 20 and ray 7 nr. 1, tangent to the uppermost circle 19 at the upper side. | ||||

22. |
Construct a circle centered at the endpoint of ray 7 nr. 1, tangent to circle 21 at the lower side. | ||||

23. |
Repeat steps 21 eight and 22 seven times alternately, creating (together with circles 21 and 22 and upper circle 19) a series of 18 circles in total of increasing diameters, tangent to each other at the upper and lower sides respectively. | ||||

24. |
Create a spiral, by leaving out alternately the left half (circles with upper centerpoint) or the right half (circles with lower centerpoint) from all 18 circles mentioned in step 23, as shown. | ||||

25. |
Circles 1, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17 and 19, and spiral 24 make up the ingredients for the reconstruction. | ||||

26. |
Leave out all parts not visible in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

27. |
Colour the areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

28. |
...or to flattened crop. This finishes the reconstruction of the Avebury Stone Avenue formation of 9-08-2003. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
