Sacred Geometry

Seed of Life

Sacred geometry is an ancient art practiced and understood by great mathematicians and artists alike. A simple scan through Leonardo da Vinci's notes or investigation into any of the Renaissance artists will reveal a knowledge of sacred geometry.

Just as the basic part of the human body is the spherical cell, sacred geometry finds its roots in the compass. A compass can be used to draw a circle, numerous circles (7 to be exact) form the seed of life (Pictured above). An unfolded seed of life reveals the flower of life from which practically any and all objects or shapes in existence can be extracted.

Where art comes alive is when you combine this logical way of understanding reality with an openhearted  creative flow.
