Reconstruction of theChute Causeway 26-07-2007 formation | |||||

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

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

3. |
Construct a circle, passing through the center of circle 1, and passing through the upper lefthand and righthand angular points of pentagon 2. | ||||

4. |
Construct the inscribed pentagon of circle 3, pointing up. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed pentagram (regular 5-pointed star) of circle 3, by drawing all diagonals of pentagon 4. | ||||

6. |
Construct the circumscribed circle of the pentagon enclosed by pentagram 5, as shown. | ||||

7. |
Construct the circumscribed pentagon of circle 6, pointing up. | ||||

8. |
Construct the inscribed circle of pentagon 4. | ||||

9. |
Construct a "two-points" circle, defined by the end-points of a centerline, with one point at the upper intersection of circle 6 and the vertical centerline, the other point at the top of pentagon 7. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 to the upper intersection of circle 8 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 8, tangent to circle 10 at the lower side. | ||||

12. |
Extend all sides of pentagon 7 in both directions up to circle 8. | ||||

13. |
Copy circle 9 four times, to the four upper intersections of circle 11 and lines 12. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 9 another six times, to all other intersections of circle 11 and lines 12. | ||||

15. |
Copy pentagram 5 and circles 13 and 14 as a whole from its lower lefthand to its upper righthand angular point, as shown. | ||||

16. |
Copy pattern 15 (pentagram and circles) from its upper lefthand to its upper righthand angular point. | ||||

17. |
Copy pattern 15 from its lower righthand angular point to its top. | ||||

18. |
Copy pattern 16 from its lower lefthand angular point to its top. | ||||

19. |
Copy pattern 17 from its lower lefthand to its upper righthand angular point. | ||||

20. |
Patterns 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19 make up the upper righthand part of the formation; remove all (inner) elements not present in the formation. | ||||

21. |
Copy pattern 20 four times, and distribute them, while rotating, evenly around pentagon 2, to the corresponding positions with respect to its angular points, as shown. | ||||

22. |
Copy pentagram 5 and circles 13 as a whole four times, and distribute them, while rotating, evenly around the center of circle 1, to the corresponding positions with respect to the sides of pentagon 2, as shown. | ||||

23. |
Copy circle 9 to the top of the pentagon enclosed by pentagrams 5 and 22, as shown. | ||||

24. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 23 at the lower side. | ||||

25. |
Construct the circumscribed pentagon of circle 24, pointing down. | ||||

26. |
Copy circle 9 five times, to the angular points of pentagon 25. | ||||

27. |
Pentagram 5, circles 13 and 26, and patterns 20, 21 and 22, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

28. |
Remove all superfluous parts, not present in the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

29. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

30. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Chute Causeway formation of 26-07-2007. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
