God as Architect, Builder, Geometer, Craftsman

I found this interesting note, with this piece of art. I just found it interesting.
"Science, and particularly geometry and astronomy, was linked directly to the divine for most medieval scholars. The compass in this 13th century manuscript is a symbol of God's act of Creation. God has created the universe after geometric and harmonic principles, to seek these principles was therefore to seek and worship God."
Mid 13th Century, France
