About our Photographic Enlargements: Each 20 x 30 inch image is printed on glossy photographic paper and is supplied hand-rolled and posted in a strong cardboard tube or is flat-packed to ensure safe delivery. We have chosen a selection of our favourite crop circles from the 2018 season for you to choose from.
Ackling Dyke 2018:
Location: This formation sits close to the little town of Sixpenny Handley in Dorset by Ackling Dyke, which is an old Roman Road. The landscape here is awash with tumuli, one tumulus sits in the field next to this crop circle. There is also a small earthwork in the field too. Just to the north of this formation is Oakley Barrow Cemetery (a collection of bell and bowl barrows) and where we have had circles before, most notably on 2014.
Design & Symbolism: This crop circle attracted a great deal of attention, its complex and beautiful design quite rightly amazed many. This design contained a seven fold star around which the rest of the formation is constructed. It is not possible to divide the 360 degrees of a circle into 7 equal whole number parts (trailing decimal places arise), so creating an accurate heptagram is quite difficult – even on paper! The ring around the formation is also divided into 7 sections, each containing two stylised rectangular spirals – the spirals are pairs (they don’t all go the same way round) they create seven pairs of facing and opposing spirals. As discussed on the Baunton page, seven is the number associated with Spirit, Revelation, the Eternal Feminine and what lies behind the Veil. It is the number associated with the notes in the musical sale and colours in the light spectrum – hence its traditional connection to the ephemeral and spiritual realms – it’s always rather special to see a seven formation.
