London’s Roman, Medieval and Civil War gates formed stoneprints

London’s last permanent wall probably expressed the same subconscious structuralist orientation as the stoneprint among London buildings. During the Renaissance London’s buildings doubled in diameter, and quadrupled in surface. The wall was demolished and gates became obsolete. London’s stoneprint retained its orientation (as Rome, Paris and other cities did), but some buildings and some gates acquired new identities, and the polar points moved south-westward, first to Temple Ave, then to the Thames south bank corner.

Structural art analysis using mindprint

Art, myth, ritual, and crafts like astrology, all derive from archetype. This post demonstrates the Senmut pseudo-astronomical ceiling as an example. Culture is sustained and standardised by subconscious expression. I did not design archetype, or this quirky cultural expression of archetypal structure. I merely identify and demonstrate this expression. Astronomical figures are not primarily zodiac figures, since they are not conventionalised. However their ranges of attributes, their sequence, and their relative positioning are highly standardised, forming a mindprint.
