|||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

3. |
Construct the inscribed circle of hexagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing up. | ||||

5. |
Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 1, and tangent to the left-hand and right-hand sides of triangle 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed hexagon of circle 3, pointing up. | ||||

7. |
Construct a circle, concentric to circle 5, and tangent to the upper left-hand and right-hand sides of hexagon 6. | ||||

8. |
Copy circle 5 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 5 another time to the lower intersection of circle 8 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 7 to the center of circle 9. | ||||

11. |
Draw the connecting line between the lower intersection of circle 7 and the upper intersection of circle 10 with the vertical centerline. | ||||

12. |
Circles 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 10, and line 11 form the constituents of the reconstruction. | ||||
