Black-and-white Sri Yantra drawings' photos are represented in the first part 'Art' on the pages 57 and 65. The first drawing has its lines of different width and its composition looks a bit strange. The second drawing has four (!) triangles with apices don't touching bases of other triangle (they must!!). Both drawings are out of mathematical value at all. I am just afraid of asking do anybody have seen MORE DIFFICULT STAR POLYGONS? The real news is all stars have the same root algorithm Sri Yantra has.
It has (God bless this world!!!) happened long time ago I had become interested only in one aspect of geometrical art of tantra: its mathematical challenge to brain. No matter that the entire Indian nation (and joined Americans) doesn't pay much attention to this geometry miracle and doesn't have any serious movement to this huge experience, I was curious enough to do what I had to do and be happy with what I have to be happy with:)
Don't forget to read the introduction. Mr. Mookerjee writes one of the best articles on the history and importance of the tantric traditions.
This book is a needed addition to the library of any serious student.
