In this paper we discuss the geometric decoration of some Mycenaean artifacts, having a remarkable six-fold symmetry, probably suggested by the observation of the natural form of the honeycomb of beehives. In particular, we will discuss a decoration of a gold roundel, made by means of a compass, that looks like the Flower of Life of sacred geometry.

Abstract

In this paper we discuss the geometric decoration of some Mycenaean artifacts, having a remarkable six-fold symmetry, probably suggested by the observation of the natural form of the honeycomb of beehives. In particular, we will discuss a decoration of a gold roundel, made by means of a compass, that looks like the Flower of Life of sacred geometry.
