You don't have to be a math wiz or even good at geometry to learn how to draw fractals, spirals, and tori. This book shows you how. Beautifully illustrated cover-to-cover with over a hundred full-color pictures and 800+ drawings. We begin with an infinitely small point, where all emanates. The most basic form of expansion from this origin is a circle. When dividing this simple shape equally and connecting these points continuously beautiful patterns emerge. As it turns out, it's possible to draw the resulting geometry with a single line starting and ending at the same point. From this concept we create Mandala String Art. Tibetan Buddhists define Mandala as "an integrated structure organized around a unifying center". The word itself is ancient Sanskrit synonymous with 'circle'. This is the language of Sacred Geometry. Starting with a dot and expanding to a circle, creating the Circumpunct, then dividing equally and connecting these new points we create the symbols of ancient religion and philosophy. "Geometry provided God with a model for the Creation" - Johannes Kepler Pythagoreans used the circled dot to represent the first metaphysical being, the Monad (or The Absolute) and in Neoplatonism the universe emanated from this (The One), also named Bindu, "the sacred symbol of the cosmos in its unmanifested state".
