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 2017 season for you to choose from.
Hannington 2017: This circle measured between 180-200ft and was in a field of golden mature wheat. The pattern comprises several concentric rings and a twelve-fold pattern over four of them, made from a circular symmetry of circles! Four half-moons sit around the perimeter at regular intervals – similar to the circle at Hackpen Hill this year which had six half-moons on its perimeter.
Twelve is the number of man according to geometer John Michell, it is the base of all imperial measure (space), and our measure of time – 12 hours of the day, 12 hours of night, 12 months in a year, 12 constellations of the Zodiac etc. This link made a vital connection between space and time, something that is now disjointed with our metric system of measure (base 10) sitting alongside our still imperial measure of time.
Twelve (like six) is an incredibly harmonious number, it is the number of edges in both the cube and the octahedron – both of which we have seen in crop circle design. These connections between number and form remind us that number in this aspect is a universal language which commands great poetry as well as great truth.
Finally, twelve around one (to give thirteen) is found in myths and legends throughout history including Christ and his twelve disciples. These myths link twelve with the Divine and in particular the the idea of Heaven and Earth, or Divine made manifest on Earth – with the Thirteenth being the transformative principle.
