More Images of Orbits by Robert Cheshire

These are works of art as well as of science, and would adorn any gallery. They did remind me in fact of the triskeles in the Book of Kells, the masterpiece of early mediaeval art probably scribed on Iona. There were four scribes in the Scriptorium on Iona, and they evidently knew geometry very well. Many thanks again to Robert Cheshire!
