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 #15 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 strips and one white (in centre). Defence square contains four gates, three black line contour and full green edge.
When you keep a sheet of paper horizontally and turn it a little, polygons seem to become like the mirrors and begin to reflect each other in strange organised order, it looks like a precious diamond game. Eighteen years of beauty. Nothing changed in this picture. Nothing changed in this world. It’s still beautiful for people to live and love in.
The smart story of discovery of the ancient mathematical algorithm (with or without my bragging), its perfection in two variations (easy 6-points of touch and more complex 10-points of touch) of Sri Yantra and nine /!!!!!!/ variations of more difficult star polygons, Sri Sarvabhava Yantra (part of them) can be uploaded here soon, I guess.
