Machu Picchu and the Flower of Life
The Flower of Life is a geometrical
figure composed of multiple evenly-spaced, overlapping circles, that are
arranged so that they form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry
like a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the circumference of six
surrounding circles of the same diameter.
The Flower of Life symbol is over six thousand years old. Throughout
human history, philosophers, artists, and architects around the world
have known this symbol for its perfect form, proportion, and harmony.
The Lost City of Incas, Machu Picchu is a 15th-century Inca site located 2,430 metres (7,970 ft) above sea level.
It is situated on a mountain ridge above the Sacred Valley which is 80 kilometres (50 mi) northwest of Cuzco and through which the Urubamba River flows.
