Overlapping Circles

Intuitive Geometry examples showing the embedded overlapping circles pattern

How does it work? Overlapping circles have been studied since ancient times. Philosophers knew that two overlapping circles create the almond shape called the Vesica Pisces from which you can make a triangle, square and pentagon. Overlapping circle patterns like The Flower of Life have long been considered significant but here these elements come together to form a method to draw and design. From the overlapping circles pattern you can create a square, triangle, hexagon, pentagon, spirals, waves and a scaling model to draw nearly anything. Here you can find some examples for inspiration.
