Spending the day resting from the glorious @utopiafest last weekend. Weaving closeup, pattern created using six, eight, and twelve pointed stars ☆ Continue reading for more info about this pattern ☆ . . . This mandala in particular has lots of fractal, self similar aspects, where the smaller shapes building the whole image are repeated on a much larger scale. I really enjoy working with twelve - it has always been the most intuitive system of geometry for me to explore. I first came across the 12 pointed star over five years ago, practicing basic fundamentals with hexagrams. A hexagram (6 points) is created from two balanced equilateral triangles (3 points), one pointed up and one pointed down. If you take this one step further, by including another hexagram pointing left and right, you wind up with a twelve pointed star. Numerically it can be expressed like this: 3 x 4 = 12, or 6 x 2 = 12. Now, what is so special about 12? It also contains a multiple of 4, which can be thought of as a square (4 sides). Triangles and squares tile out in radically different ways, ie triangular tiling looks like a honeycomb pattern, and square tiling looks like a checkerboard pattern. However, by using the twelve pointed star, the two different systems flow together effortlessly and quite beautifully. This pattern incorporates the square in the form of an eight pointed star, which is created from two interlocking squares (4 x 2 = 8) ☆ . . . #mathart #geometric #geometrychaos #sacredgeometry #mandala #mandalas #mandalaart #pentagram #blxckmandalas #visionaryart #darkart #psychedelicart #zentangle #islamicgeometry #islamicdesign #islamicpattern #islamicart #pattern #zellige #tessellation #floweroflife #trippy #digitalart #fractal #fractals #occultart #mandalaplanet #mandalala #beautiful_mandalas #simplycooldesign

one of the most interesting aspects of the universe is the existence of scales. there is an insane size to the spectrum of how smal things can be and how large. but what is most fascinating is when you look closely at these things you will notice the eerie repetition of the same form over and over. the universe is truley fractal down to the bone. . . . . #visionary #dao #buddhism #ayahuasca #terencemckenna #psychedelic #psychedelics #fractal #fractals #universe #spectrum #psychedelicart #vision #visionaryart #graphicdesign #trippyart #trippy #cultureisnotyourfriend #culture #ancientwisdom #wisdom #knowledge #mystery #mushrooms #magicmushrooms #magic #magical
