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.
Hackpen Hill (2) 2018:
Location: Hackpen Hill is a regular site for crop circles and many have been seen there over the years. They do not always occur in the same field every year, sometimes they appear at the top of the hill by the ancient Ridgeway path that routes from Avebury and onto Barbury Castle, sometimes below. The two in 2018 are below the White Horse.
Hackpen White Horse was cut to commemorate the coronation of Queen Victoria in 1838. Although little is known about the origins of the horse it is believed to have been cut by Henry Eatwell, parish clerk of Broad Hinton and also the local publican. The horse measures 90ft by 90ft and is best viewed from the A361 at Broad Hinton. You can read more about the horse here.
Design and Symbolism: This design looked crisp and sharp in the field. A small pentagram in a circle is then further contained within two rings, all arranged to create a crescent moon pattern – a Star and a Moon. Both these design motifs have been used with incredible regularity in crop circle design, always different, always beautiful. There is also a lovely Phi proportion which holds the whole design together. Five is the number of life, its the number of man in the sense that it looks like a person – head, two arms and two legs. Five-fold geometry is found in all living things and governs growth patterns and proportions using Phi (the Golden Ratio) which is generated by the pentagram star. The planet Venus transcribes a pentagram star around the Earth, one every eight years – the coincidence between 5 and 8 is interesting as they are also two concurrent Fibonacci numbers. The proportions found in the crop circles also govern the heavens – the movement of the plants and the swirl of the Milk Way (Galaxy). This is another classic way of creating sacred space, by marrying the Heavens and Earth together.
