A very large formation of circles and arcs flowing from a bisected triangle with a shaft and circles leading from it. An addition of varying sized rectangles and circles connected by shafts thereby more than doubling the original size. A further addition of as yet undesciphered hieroglyphics bringing the total length of the formation to approx: 1000 feet in length.
Simon Beck's astonishing landscape and snow art illustrates the cold beauty of mathematics – in pictures
For the past decade, Simon Beck has been decorating the Alps with his stunning mathematical drawings, created by running in snowshoes across freshly laid snow. Each image takes him up to 11 hours to make and covers an area about 100m x 100m, requiring him to travel up to 25 miles as he marks out the pattern.
