Reconstruction of the
The Sanctuary (2) 7-09-2008 formation

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

2. Copy circle 1 to its upper intersection with the vertical centerline.

3. Create a "Flower-of-Life" pattern, by copying circle 1 five times, one to the lower intersection with the vertical centerline, the next two to the intersections of the first, and the last two to the intersections of circle 2, all with circle 1.

4. Draw one ray of circle 1, from its center to its righthand intersection with circle 2.

5. Draw 35 more rays of circle 1, 10° from ray 4, and all 10° apart, 36 in total, as shown.

6. Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, passing through the adjacent intersections of rays 5 and circle 1, as shown.

7. Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, passing through the next adjacent intersections (with respect to the previous circle) of rays 5 and circle 1.

8. Repeat step 7 for the next adjacent intersections.

9. Repeat step 8 for the next adjacent intersections.

10. Repeat step 9 for the next adjacent intersections.

11. Construct a circle centered at the intersection of the topmost ray 5 and circle 10, tangent to the two adjacent rays 5.

12. Copy circle 11 to the intersection of the topmost ray 5 and circle 8.

13. Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, tangent to circle 12 at the lower side.

14. Copy circles 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 five times, to the centers of circles 3.

15. Copy circle 13 two times, to the centers of the lower lefthand and righthand circles 3.

16. Draw the connecting line between the intersections of circles 1 and 7.

17. Copy circle 11 to the intersection of the topmost ray 5 and line 16.

18. Construct a circle concentric to circle 2, tangent to line 16.

19. Copy circle 18 to its upper intersection with the vertical centerline.

20. Copy circle 18 to the upper intersection of circle 6 and the vertical centerline.

21. Draw a line, passing through the lower intersection of circle 17 with, and perpendicular to the vertical centerline, extending to circle 6 in both directions.

22. Construct a circle centered at the intersection of line 21 and the vertical centerline, passing through the intersections of line 21 and the upper two circles 3.

23. Copy circle 22 to the upper intersection of circle 20 and the vertical centerline, and move it (copy and delete original) to its own corresponding intersection.

24. Circles 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 13, 14, 15, 17, 19 and 23, are used for the final reconstruction.

25. Remove all parts not visible in the formation itself.
