Our alien overlords aren't content to stick to 2D sacred geometry - they've been inspired by James Cameron and gone all 3D with their crop glyphs:

Not sure about the '4D' mentions in Daily Mail article though...
Over a decade ago pranksters Doug Bower and Dave Chorley admitted that they had created 200 crop circles mostly around Warminster.
Are those guys still ALIVE, to begin with?? Or have they moved on to making crop circles from the great beyond?
It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

Maybe their kids have inherited the plank-&-rope, or there are Doug-&-Dave copycats roaming the English countryside. Not sure which one is scarier.

I read a science fiction story several years ago, in which humanity is late to space travel, because we missed an obvious step around 1500 AD or so. We are then visited by aliens who try to conquer us with muskets and crossbows.
Perhaps is is even more extreme, the aliens make their spacecraft out of rope and planks. Because this is tricky (you try it), they are also really good at making these crop circles.
This would also explain why said aliens don't take over the planet - their technology is too far behind ours.
We are the cat.

Close: they build them with wood & tinfoil :)
An Escher-ish motif might be nice too. Perhaps a little too time consuming, lest the farmer catch the spacecraft.
i hate to be picky.... BUT...the makers have got the perspective slightly wrong on this one, the taper on the shape is too great for it to fit snugly inside a cube, as i suspect it is supposed to. if you converge the vertical lines then the shape it would fit inside is conical. it's quite subtle, but to me it just doesn't sit right. it could be the photo i suppose or maybe it's back to the drawing board...
