Rolling circle inversions

The basic object here is repeated infinitely using a circle inversion transformation (available in the public formula database). As the basic object is very symmetrical (16 fold), one needs to draw only a few frames in the animation (just 4 in this case) to get the illusion of a continuously rotating object.

Note: You need to have QuickTime installed to view the animation.
