Between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries, the Japanese used to hang up pictures of maths theorems at their shrines.

More than 700 sangaku are known to have survived, and this shape is a detail from the oldest one that exists in its complete form.

The painting dates from 1686 and hangs in the Kitano Tenman-gu shrine in Kyoto, which I visited recently.

During the seventeenth century, when mathematics was transformed in the West by scientists like Newton, Japan was completely isolated from the rest of the world and it developed its own mathematical traditions - discovering many famous theorems independently.
