Funny Math Pictures in Ancient Art Style

Some people told me that these math pictures look like the art of ancient civilizations.

My sister said that the visual style is like children's graffiti works.

Re: Funny Math Pictures in Ancient Art Style

Hi benice;

It does remind me of Central American or South American drawings.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Hi anonimnystefy;

Yes, some characters look like owls. Another owl picture can be found here.

You can also visit this page to learn how to draw an owl (or other animals) with circles.

They do, except they are thousands of years old!

Re: Funny Math Pictures in Ancient Art Style

Why wouldn't aliens be able to exist even then?

This one is from an ancient artist, perhaps a distant relative:
