Symmetry

The Kastellet in Copenhagen, dating from 1626,  is a uniquely preserved star fortress in the shape of a pentagram. Symmetry might be defined as “A due proportion of the several parts of a body to each other; adaptation of the form or dimensions of the several parts of a thing to each other; the union and conformity of the members of a work to the whole” (Webster’s). Perhaps the picture of ducks in formation on the water near the Kastellet says it another way.
