I am on a journey with the field of Sacred Geometry,  studying geometry as an art form, along with its philosophical roots in Pythagoras, and Plato.  I am currently a student of Mark A. Reynolds of Mill Valley, accomplished geometer and artist.

An Example of Gnomonic Expansion

This diagram below shows the underlying architecture for the construction of a pentagram, one symbol of perfection and generativity.  Note how the pentagram is the child of the underlying vesica pisces, the intersection of two monadic circles.

The underlying internal geometric structure for a 10 -sided polygon.

Pentagon, Phi, and the underlying gnomons

The Web of Athena is a heptagram shown here with the underlying vesica pisces.

This is a small-scale version of the northern Rose Window at Chartres Cathedral, a structure built entirely around principles of sacred geometry in architecture.

The pictures below show a man who actually makes his living as a sacred geometer constructing labyrinths.  His name is Lars Hewlett.  My teacher, Kayleen Asbo, arranged for the funding of the beautiful  labyrinth shown below, similar to the one at Chartres Cathedral.  This labyrinth has been constructed at St. John's Episcopal Church in Petaluma.
