The word Theorem suggests, according to Webster?s New World Dictionary, "an expression of relations in an equation or formula." As such, the cohesive composition is achieved through a series of stencils cut in such a manner that no two areas immediately next to each other can be placed on the same stencil . Thus, any theorem will require the sequence of two or more stencils or overlays. This technique was popular among women of all ages during the early 1800?s.
