In my paper „Forgotten canon - proportions for church building“ I spoke of the Byzantine canon, where the isosceles is an important element, and many Catholic churches have been designed by it. In the further meticulous work I have discovered that even Roman edifices like Pantheon ad Diocletian's palace have been built according to it. In the article, which is part of my meticulous work on proportions, I present my study of proportions which appear out of a graffito discovery, carved in stone door-post which is on architrave door of the „Levanda“ restaurant in Velo Grablje on the island of Hvar. Graffito represents a proportional combination of constructing the Latin cross, namely, Romanic and Gothic churches of the West. In this proportion compound combination there is chequerboard scheme. We can see that the chequerboard is placed upon isosceles. This proportional compound discloses creation of one foot measure size and its parts and also that they are connected to the chequerboard and human body, which is inscribed within. I prove that Romanic Umbria crosses, the big Cetinje cross and the cross with the Crucified above the cathedral altar in Hvar, as well as the wood cross from Blaž Jurjev of Trogir in the church of St. Francis in Split, have been constructed by that compound. The ground floor map of the Hvar cathedral is also constructed after that proportional compound for constructing the Latin Cross. The Latin cross is in the center of the circle around the apse and on top of the Romanic Umbria cross God is represented in a small circle, i.e. God's hand in half of the circle on the top of the cross. This proportional compound is not a Medieval invention, because measuring in feet has been found in much earlier period. Greeks and Romans had been using it, and many a more before them we know nothing of.
Pyramids at highlands of Gizah in Egypt prove it because they are constructed according to it too. Number Pi (Landolf number) and number Fi are hidden in the chequerboard, within the foot measure unit. If we divide number Pi with 13, we get the size of the smallest measure unit - a line. On grounds of the isosceles we can get, using graphic construction, the rest of the measure units, the foot being the biggest and that is at the same time the man's height. Using mathematics I proved that Bufon number is nothing but the foot measure. The whole number of protons and neutrons in amino acids creating DNA is 7920, the exact number of lines in eleven feet. This proves that measure units are mathematically linked to the man. By graphic construction and using the chequerboard I proved that the isosceles side is the size of the Pi. Number Pi is closely connected to the Cheops's pyramid, as visible from the pyramid construction in the proportional compound canon for church building 2, where the length defined by points S2 - T1 = Pi. Demonstrating graphic construction using number Fi, I constructed the Cheops's pyramid.
