Flower of Life,
The Flower of Life, a pattern generated from overlapping circles, shows up in many ancient cultures and is a fundamental subject in the study of sacred geometry. These patterns can be drawn by compass alone, without needing to use a straightedge. Leading to many fascinating geometric insights, the patterns, when viewed in a three dimensional context, contain all five of the Platonic solids.
