Copy circle 23 to the center of lefthand circle 29. 33. Copy circle 11 two times, to the upper intersection of circle 15 and the vertical centerline, and to the intersection of circle 32 and line 28. 34. Construct two parallel lines, tangent to circles 33 at both sides, and extend the righthand one downto the lower line 30. 35. Remove all redundant parts from lines 30, 31 and 34, and create the pattern as shown. 36. Copy pattern 35 eleven times, by repeating all necessary steps with respect to the other angular points 4 (nrs. 1 - 11). 37. Construct a "two-points" circle (defined by the two end-points of a centerline) between the intersections of ray 22 nr. 2 and circles 17 and 19. 38. Construct a "two-points" circle between the center of circle 37 and the intersection of ray 22 nr. 2 and circle 13. 39. Repeat steps 37 and 38 with respect to rays 22 nrs. 5, 8, and 11. 40. Copy circle 11 four times, to the intersections of circle 1 and the horizontal and vertical centerlines. 41. Construct two pairs of parallel lines, parallel to the horizontal and vertical centerlines, pairwise tangent to circles 40 at both sides. 42. Circles 1, 7, 13, 15, 17, 19, 25, 27, 38, and 39, lines 22, and 41, and patterns 35 and 36, are used for the final reconstruction. 43. Remove all parts not visible within the formation itself.pdf-file 44. Colour all areas corresponding to standing...pdf-file 45. ...or to flattened crop, and finish the reconstruction of the Ox Drove formation of 8-08-2015.pdf-file 46.
