Voynich Rosettes Page Structures

The Voynich Manuscript's rosettes page has many structures. This page has most or all of them, copied from the SIDs of the Voynich, and enlarged.


Here is the most discussed of the page's structures: The castle. Despite many attempts to identify this building, all have so far failed.

Note the castellations on the walls... identified by some as "swallow tail merlons”. However the edge of the tower wall seems to be simply decorative curves, or a rudimentary attempt as castellations.

Also note that this close-up shows that the rear left tower is also square, and not round, as I previously thought.

The tower's two posts at the top appear to me as an attempt to show flags on poles. I feel this way after seeing not only them, but comparing them to all such accessories on other rosettes structures.

It looks like two blobs of brown ink in the door, under the blob. Always something new to notice in the VMs...



"The other castle". This is also near the upper right rosette, and seems to mark an entrance/exit to the lower portions of the rosette (which I feel strongly is a map of some kind, most likely and island, and most likely a fantasy location).

The lower building looks much like a gatehouse.

And although the "flags" are going in different directions, they still look like flags to me.



Some houses, towers and such, heading out of the uppper right rosette.

Note the "ghost tower" near the center. Is this a transfer?



Smaller tower... almost simply a house... from the wall of the upper right rosette.



Two more towers from the upper right rosette.

It has been suggested that the one on the right is not a tower, but part of the wall. but I think... as badly drawn as it is, it was intendd as a tower.

The structure to the left has a turret or tower sticking off to the side. These are known as "bartizans", or "guerites".  The Wikipedia article states, "A bartizan or guerite is an overhanging, wall-mounted turret projecting from the walls of medieval fortifications from the early 14th century up to the 16th century. They protect a warder and enable him to see around him. Bartizans generally are furnished with oylets or arrow slits."




Cute little "house" on the wall. Near left upper rosette.



Two more wall towers.


Nice looking tower... the artist got the perspective pretty well on this one.



Near upper left rosette. Another example with a bartizan. Also, note the "C" shaped structure, with the blue roof.


Wall house and "C" structure... the latter is clearly a defensive structure.


Is this not a tower? And is it not in a hole? I have been told it is not, and that it is really sitting up on top of a surface. But I think from this shot the arrangement is clear: A tower, in a hole.

From near the upper left rosette. I find this very compelling evidenc that the rosette page, and also by association, the Voynich Manuscript, is a fantasy document, representing real and fantasy elements.




I think the center complex of the rosettes page qualifies as a structure. Very unusual structure, of course.

Six columns/towers surround what looks like a floating section of sky, or an awning, or really "who knows"?

See my New Atlantis theory, in which I theorize that the Voynich is some sort of artifact made for, or to accompany in some way, Francis Bacon's fictional utopian saga.

In this context, this center would be the House of Solomon, also referred to as the House of the Six Days Work.

It has six columns.
