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

2. |
Construct the circumscribed hexagon (regular 6-sided polygon) of circle 1, pointing to the right. | ||||

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

4. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 3, pointing down. | ||||

5. |
Construct the inscribed equilateral triangle of circle 3, pointing up. | ||||

6. |
Construct a circle centered at the mid-point of the upper side of triangle 4, passing through the intersection of this side with the upper righthand side of triangle 5. | ||||

7. |
Copy circle 6 two times, to the mid-points of the other sides of triangle 4. | ||||

8. |
Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the upper intersections of circles 1 and 6 with the vertical centerline. | ||||

9. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 6, passing through the center of circle 8. | ||||

10. |
Copy circle 9 two times, to the centers of circles 7. | ||||

11. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, passing through the center of circle 8. | ||||

12. |
Construct a circle centered at the top of triangle 5, tangent to the upper side of triangle 4. | ||||

13. |
Construct a circle centered at the intersection of circle 12 and the upper righthand side of triangle 5, tangent to circle 6 at the righthand side. See detail. | ||||

14. |
Copy circle 13 to the top of triangle 5. | ||||

15. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 14 at the lower side. | ||||

16. |
Copy circle 8 to the upper intersection of circle 15 and the vertical centerline. | ||||

17. |
Construct a circle concentric to circle 1, tangent to circle 16 at the lower side. | ||||

18. |
Construct a (small) circle centered at the intersection of the upper side of triangle 4 and the upper lefthand side of hexagon 2, passing through the lefthand intersection of the same side with circle 1. See detail. | ||||

19. |
Copy circle 18 to the center of circle 1. | ||||

20. |
Copy circle 18 another twelve times, to the angular points of hexagon 2 and of triangles 4 and 5. | ||||

21. |
Construct twelve pairs of parallel lines, pairwise tangent to circle 19 and each of circles 20, all at both sides, as shown. See detail. | ||||

22. |
Circles 1, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 15 and 17, and lines 21, are used for the final reconstruction. | ||||

23. |
Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself. High resolution dwf-file | ||||

24. |
Colour all areas corresponding to standing... High resolution dwf-file | ||||

25. |
...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Stonehenge (3) formation of 13-07-2011. High resolution dwf-file | ||||
