Reconstruction of theWouldham 4-07-2006 formation | |||||

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

2. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

3. |
Copy circle 1 three times, to the angular points of triangle 2. | ||||

4. |
Complete the flower-of-life pattern, by copying circle 1 another three times, to the (outer) intersections of circles 3. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed dodecagon (regular 12-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

6. |
Construct the inscribed circle of dodecagon 5. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 6 six times, to the centers of circles 3 and 4. | ||||

8. |
Draw a line from the lefthand intersection of circle 1 and the horizontal centerline, to the upper right outer intersection of (two adjacent) circles 7, as shown. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to line 8. | ||||

10. |
Draw three rays, from the center of circle 1 to the angular points of triangle 2. Extend these lines up to circles 3. | ||||

11. |
Copy circle 9 three times, to the outer intersections of circles 3 and rays 10, as shown. | ||||

12. |
Construct the circumscribed dodecagon of circle 1, the righthand side perpendicular to the horizontal centerline. | ||||

13. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of dodecagon 12. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 13 six times, to the centers of circles 7. | ||||

15. |
Circles 1, 7, 11 and 14 are the only elements needed for the final reconstruction. | ||||

16. |
Remove all superfluous parts not visible in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

17. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

18. |
...or to flattened crop. This completes the reconstruction of the Wouldham formation of 4-07-2006. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
