The Kloster Haina Star Vault

A4 297 x 210 mm / 6 pages / full colour

The vault at Kloster Haina Abbey in Germany is decorated with a scheme of six point stars, oriented east west in the nave and north south in the transepts. The stars are designed using the compass drawn daisy wheel where the six petal tips determine the points of the stars' six stellations which radiate around small central hexagons.
