 Bastrop County, Texas....

Hotbed of Prehistoric Geometry!   Dollmaker discovers

Circles within circles... ever widening, ever narrowing...

What is it about this design that is ... so compelling...

so... Infinite...

    

Concentric Circles 

 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!

      

(or underfoot)

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?

Well...

Nature does it by creating from the Center.

 
     

 

Meanwhile...

The Dollmaker is getting ready for

Here the Challenge is to make a group of dolls that would appeal to a Very International and Worldly Group of Women who are no-nonsense about Improving the World for Everybody. These are Women who use words like "sustainability" and phrases like "change management"!

The Dollmaker would humbly like to ensure that the word "Fun" stays in the

vocabulary of the World Savers. Therefore...

A new tribe of International Dolls 

representing Merriment in diverse racial and economic settings...

is slowly emerging, called the

Woopi-Wees

joining Humanity together in Global Jubilation!

Sustainability: Make friends, not war.
