Hotbed of Sacred Geometry! Dollmaker discovers
Circles within circles... ever widening, ever narrowing...
What is it about this design that is ... so compelling...
don't have to be exactly round.
They just have to have a Common Center.
An ancient Design
CONCENTRIC RINGS sometimes will indicate a "Progression", a layering or growth from the center outwards

The Tjuringa sacred stones include a sun symbol identical to that of the Aten, the solar deity worshipped in Egypt around 1000 BC. In Atonist art, the Sun was depicted as having little hands that reached out to touch mankind.

"Nature's First Pattern"
Also called the Creation Pattern.
It is said that ALL FORM traces to this pattern
and each concentric circle is named:
"The Germ Of Life, The Seed Of Life,
The Flower Of Life, and The Fruit Of Life."
which gets us off into
Metatron's Cube and Sacred Geometry
So, the humble Dollmaker looketh upon the prevalence of these
Natural Circles within Circles,
as well as these
Historically, Artistically and Mathematically Celebrated
Circles within Circles, and shethinketh that there is
certainly Something Significantly Magical Afoot Here!
The Circle has generated a generous quantity of Lore and Legend,
most of it with some kind of irrefutable bent, such as...
"A circle has no beginning and no end."
and speaking of bent, even when a circle is bent around, it still has no beginning and no end.
So the Dollmaker wondereth...
How is it possible to create something that has no beginning and no end?
Nature does it by creating from the Center.
