Description: A site that explores the relation between the mathematics of ancient reckoning systems, expressed in historically significant numbers (cited in the historical record), and designs within the geometry of ancient artwork. The complexity of design within the Aztec Calendar is dealt with in Earth/matriX essays in an attempt to relate historically significant numbers to the apparent rings contained within the design.
