Using only a pencil, ruler and protractor, Venezuelan artist Rafael Araujo creates these beautiful renderings of the three dimensional space butterflies occupy and the mathematical spirals of sea shells.
With 12 Points and 12 rings in each point this image has a foundation of 144 rings. The division into 3 sections represents trinity (strength and equilibrium). 12 represents complex stability, 12 houses, 12 disciples, 12 tribes, etc. 144 represents a fractal of the number of children in the “house of the rising sun”, of the tribe of light, 144,000. Black and white represents the total polarity from manifest creation to the source of unmanifest potential. Creating a FOL (Flower of Life) on top of an FOL rotated 30 degrees gives a 12 pointed geometric map to a dodecahedron within a dodecahedron, a map to self reference. Consciousness.
