| GEOMETRY | DIGITAL DOODLES |
I often play around with shapes & create variations of them before settling on one for use in my art
Here are a few that I have created over the past few months, each based on a specific geometric shape or symbol.
I tend to post them as I do them on Instagram under the name @punctured_artefact
Inspired by | The Dodecahedron |
|| Dodecahedron || is the fourth in the series of the five Platonic Solid shapes. It contains 12 faces, 20 vertices and 30 edges, being the closest of the Platonic Solids to mimic the shape of the sphere.
Plato described the Dodecahedron as the shape, "... god used for arranging the constellations on the whole heaven”.
Inspired by | The Octagon |
|| Octagon || The symbolic meaning of octagon deals with: Regeneration, Totality, Infinity, Rebirth, Transition
Inspired by | The Mandala |
|| Mandala || (Sanskrit: 'circle') is a spiritual and ritual symbol, representing the Universe. In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any plan, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically.
Inspired by | The Torus |
|| Torus || The word “torus” comes from the Latin word meaning swelling. In sacred geometry it is the first shape to emerge from the Genesis Pattern. In Mathematics, a torus is a doughnut-shaped object such as an O ring. It is a surface of an object formed by revolving a circle in three-dimensional space about an axis that lies in the same plane as the circle.
Inspired by | The Seed Of Life |
|| Seed Of Life || is a universal symbol of creation. The Seed of Life is formed from a relationship of 6 circles around one.
Inspired by | The Metatron's Cube |
|| Metatron's Cube || is a name for a geometric figure composed of 13 equal circles with lines from the center of each circle extending out to the centers of the other 12 circles
Metatron's cube contains every shape that exists within the universe. Those shapes are the building blocks of all physical matter, which are known as Platonic solids. The shapes represent the patterns that make up everything that exists.
Inspired by | The Vesica Piscis |
|| Vesica Piscis || The Vesica Piscis a mathematical shape formed by the intersection of two disks with the same radius, intersecting in such a way that the centre of each disk lies on the perimeter of the other
Inspired by | The Tetrahedron |
|| Tetrahedron || The first of the platonic solids is the tetrahedron having 4 triangular sides.
The Tetrahedron represents the element of Fire and is linked to the Solar Plexus; the centre for personal power and acceptance. It creates the natural balance between the physical and spiritual. Each side sits flat, no matter how it is turned, making it the perfect symbol for balance and stability. It is also linked to creating change
I often post bits & pieces created from these doodles, as a free download
Symbolism | The flower of life (sometimes called the “blueprint of creation’) has been used as a decorative motif since ancient times, forms a flower-like pattern with the symmetrical structure of a hexagon. It consists of seven or more overlapping circles, in which the centre of each circle is on the circumference of up to six surrounding circles of the same diameter. However, the surrounding circles need not be clearly or completely drawn; in fact, some ancient symbols that are claimed as examples of the Flower of Life contain only a single circle or hexagon.
Leonardo da Vinci studied the Flower of Life's form and its mathematical properties. He drew the Flower of Life itself, as well as various components such as the Seed of Life.
