Grids and the consistent Buddha

Buddha grid

According to John Dilworth, Tibetan Buddhists have for thousands of years maintained consistency in their religious iconography through the use of geometric grids, providing a structural framework on which various artists can create these sacred images. The traditional artist would first create the grid, then begin the drawing, working within the constraints of the grid.

So you see, Grasshopper, the grid is indeed the path to layout nirvana!
