|||||

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. |
Create the circumscribed hexagram (regular 6-pointed star) of circle 3, by constructing two circumscribed equilateral triangles, one pointing up, one pointing down. | ||||

5. |
Draw twelve rays from the center of circle 1, six to the angular points of hexagon 2 and six to the mutual intersections of the two triangles making up hexagram 4, as shown. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle centered at the right intersection of triangles 4, passing through the end-points of the right side of hexagon 2. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 6 five times, to the remaining intersections of triangles 4. | ||||

8. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, tangent to the adjacent circles 7 at the near sides, as shown. | ||||

9. |
Copy circle 8 five times, to the centers of circles 7. | ||||

10. |
Construct a circle with a centerline the end-points of which coincide with the intersections of the right horizontal ray 5 and circles 1 and 3. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 10 to the lower intersection of circle 6 and the right side of triangle 4 pointing up. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, tangent to circle 11 at the near side. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 10 to the lower intersection of circle 12 and the right side of triangle 4 pointing up, see detail. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 10 to the right intersection of circles 12 and 13, see detail. This circle is tangent both to one side of one triangle 4 and to circle 6. | ||||

15. |
Copy circle 14 (10) five times, to the corresponding positions with respect to the remaining sides of triangles 4 and circles 7, as shown. | ||||

16. |
Construct a line, tangent to the upper two circles 15 at the lower sides. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 16. | ||||

18. |
Construct a circle with a centerline the end-points of which coincide with the intersections of the right horizontal ray 5 and circles 3 and 6. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 18 six times, to the centers of circles 14 and 15. | ||||

20. |
Construct a circle centered at the upper intersection of circle 8 and the right side of triangle 4 pointing down, tangent to circle 1 at the near side, as shown. | ||||

21. |
Copy circle 20 six times, to the centers of circles 19. | ||||

22. |
Construct a small circle with a centerline the end-points of which coincide with the intersections of the right horizontal ray 5 and circles 6 and 8. | ||||

23. |
Copy circle 22 two times, to the center of circle 14 and to the right intersection of triangles 4, as shown. | ||||

24. |
Construct two parallel lines, tangent at both sides to circles 23, as shown. | ||||

25. |
Copy the two circles 23 each five times, to the centers of circles 15 and the remaining intersections of triangles 4. | ||||

26. |
Repeat step 24 five times, for the corresponding pairs of circles 25. | ||||

27. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to the left circle 23 at the left side, see detail. | ||||

28. |
Circles 1, 6, 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21, and 27, and lines 24 and 26 make up the necessary ingredients for the final reconstruction. | ||||
