The whole collection 1994-95 Sri Yantra and More Difficult Star Polygons consists of 32 items. Some of them are in the private collections, some of them aren’t for sale at all. Every item is covered by half-transparent protective paper fixed back right side by small drops of glue, it flips easily and/or can be promptly removed.
Sri Yantra #16 is a blue twin sister of previously described item. It has a bit greater diameter, 4 1/4’’, and with mathematically exact straight lines it adds beauty to this kind of art. The outermost 14-pointed star polygon is drawn inside of thin and contrast thick circles. The outside diameter of Mekhala has four lines and they form two green strip and one white (in centre). Defence square contains four gates, three black lines contour and full green edge.
The mathematical exactness of the whole collection (including this one) gives a tool for those who practice such kind of meditation. It is highly organised piece of paper and lines, it’s a symbol of very, sometimes extremely difficult laws of nature human can never understand, and simple beauty surrounding us in a drop of rain, leaves on the trees or anything else — in the same time. All kind of imagination is inside the chakras. That is. The problem is how to get it out.
The smart and cool story of discovery of ancient mathematical algorithm, its perfection in two variations (easy 6-points of touch and more complex 10-points of touch) of Sri Yantra and nine, NINE /!!!!!!!!/ variations of more difficult star polygons, Sri Sarvabhava Yantra (part of them at least) can be uploaded here sooner or later, I suppose.
