Knoll Down, nr Beckhampton, Wiltshire
This very pretty little circle, did not last much past two days and has now been cut out by the farmer. A six-fold ‘Seed-of-Life’ flower it is the negative (inverse) of a circle which appeared not too far away from this circle in Yatesbury on the 25th June 2013. In that formation the petals of the flower were standing, in this one the opposite is true and the petals are flattened. The Seed of Life is a six-fold pattern which has mystical and spiritual meaning for some and is repeated to create the Flower-of-Life pattern popularised by Drunvalo Melchizedek as a geometrical blue-print for creation. This little pattern has certainly been seen with some regularity in crop circle design over the years and is as beautiful as it is compact.
This crop circle is included in our 2015 box set of 7 x 5 prints and will be included in our Crop Circle Year Book 2015 published later this year. Visit our shop to find out more!

This simple design is always a joy to draw and is great for those new to geometry. Only one compass dimension is needed to create the design and it is simple, satisfying and elegant. Using your compass draw a circle onto your page, keeping the compass open at the same diameter, then place the point of the compass anywhere on the perimeter of that circle and draw an arc that travels across the inside on the circle through the centre point – begin at the perimeter and end on the perimeter. Then place the point of your compass on the perimeter of the circle again at one end of arc (where it meets the perimeter) and draw another arc across the circle. Repeat this process six times, and you will create this pretty design. It divides the 360°s of the circle into six equal parts. The picture in the Gallery below shows my drawing of the 2013 circle at Yatesbury – the inverse of this one at Knoll Down.
