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.
The Sri Yantra #14 is a twin sister of #13. The difference is in blue colour. The lines of polygons are 0.25 mm, and the main feature of this star is its mathematical exactness as a result of following strict ancient set of rules. The line of red lotus petals are a bit greater then line for green petals (outer ring). There are four lines in outer circle of mandala and two green strips, inner circle is white. Bhupura (square of defence) is double svastika, triple black line and full green colour. So, the technical description is the same like previous one.
As I have said before electronic image doesn’t have the same impression as original, and now I am watching original drawing, and every time I do it I want to touch paper by fingers just to feel for a second the track of ink line made 15 years ago. I don’t know why but I am proud of the fact that nobody in the world can repeat the stars with such thinness of lines in two variations and draw More Difficult Star Polygons the same time. All stars including the most difficult have the same root in history of human knowledge, the fact makes me amused.
The cool story of discovery of the 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) can be upload here in June, 2012.
