Everything is the Same

SYMMETRY IS BEAUTY by Justin Montanez

Rotating disk, Nariño Plateau - Late Period, 600/1700, From the collection of: Museo del Oro, Bogotá
I often wonder how these designs get printed on armor of the past with such precision.
Flame, Yee, Sookyung, 2006, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
Uniform static.
Symbolic Offerings, 18th century, From the collection of: Rubin Museum of Art
I love the symmetry and symbolism
With simliar number of people on each side and a central figure in the middle, the image screams symmetry
Rotating disk, Nariño Plateau - Late Period, 600/1700, From the collection of: Museo del Oro, Bogotá
Again, the precision in which the design is imprinted is baffling for the time period in which it was dated to.
Chalice cover, Unknown, late 17th century, From the collection of: Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
I love floral patterns like this that meet at the center. It's almost like a kaleidoscope.
Bronze Human Figure, Late Shang Dynasty, 1100 B.C. - The Western Zhou Dynasty, 771 B.C., From the collection of: Jinsha Site Museum
This figure is almost alien-like, and his or her proportions are near symmetrical
Illusion, Choi, Hyo Soon, 2008, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
I enjoy the uniform and symmetrical patterns of butterfly wings.
Chasuble, Unknown, 1430/1440, From the collection of: Treasury, Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien
More symmetrical patterns within the design, all pointing to a center piece and equal parts on each side. Beauty!
Catch Me If You Can, Lee, Joong Keun, 2008/2009, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
This radial pattern is just amazing.
Love, Lee, Joong Keun, 2010, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
A kaleidoscope of skeletons, wings, and hearty things.
In God We Trust?, Lee, Joong Keun, 2008/2009, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
I am a huge architecture fan. Whenever I am in the presence of amazing work as this, I can't help but marvel at it.
Super Nature (Waterfall), Lee, Joong Keun, 2010, From the collection of: Korean Art Museum Association
Again, as an architecture appreciator, the perspective really helps to bring out the beauty of symmetry
Wedding Supper, Martin van Meytens, 1763, From the collection of: Schönbrunn Palace
I can barely draw the same thing on both sides, so how does one go about something as incredible as this?
Adam and Eve, Albrecht Dürer, 1504, From the collection of: The Morgan Library & Museum
The symmetry in the human body is and always has been a thing to marvel at.
