Flower of Life: How to draw it…Posted: March 3, 2012 | |
The Flower of Life is in fact a seed for further geometric construction. It conatains the Seed of Life, and if carried outward provides the frame for Metatron’s Cube. Drawing the Seed of Life is astonishingly simple.
Begin by drawing a circle. Use a compass. Now take the METAL TIP of the compass and place it anywhere along the circle you just made; draw another circle. You should have the exact image you see above.
Next, locate the two points where the circles intersect, here shown by the green arrows. Place the metal tip of the compass on these intersections, and draw two more circles.
For the next step, simply repeat the process from before; locate the two new intersections and draw circles from those points. Again, look at the green arrows. By now you should have 6 circles.
The two circles drawn in the previous step should intersect at a single point with the original circle. Put your metal tip on that point and draw the sixth circle. These 7 circles comprise what is known as the Seed of Life. Carrying the process outward will give you the Flower of Life shown below….
This construction is the framework for Metatron’s Cube. See the link below for a full tutorial on how to construct Metatron’s Cube and the Five Platonic Solids.
