Sacred Geometry


This is my entry for The Three Muses Challenge (Numerology). It depicts how numbers bring order and form to design and function in our lives. Numbers afford us balance and accountability in all that we do; paving the way for creativity to flourish.
The background is made from ruler paper, over- layed with architectural renderings (artist papers). The scholar's face and compass are dover clip-art. I experimented with different artistic filters and then inverted the layers and added a gradient hue which gave the piece a "blueprint" look.
