Artist's Description

I drew this one in 2001 about a month before the infamous terrorist attack that year. At the time I was thinking of magic circles and the infinite numbers called Phi and Pi. The interesting synchronicity in this drawing was the decision to show the ruined Greek Parthenon, which was architecturally based on the magic square ratio also reflected in the rectangular shape of this design. The interesting synchronicity that was realized after 9/11/2001 was the fact that the Parthenon was used as an ammunition dump by Muslim extremists, and on September 16, 1687, the Parthenon suffered a direct hit in the Turkish Venetian War making it also a ruined landmark like Ground Zero in Manhattan.
