Magic Line 8x8

Magic Line 8x8 is my third artwork ended 1/1/2011.

Math description of the artwork:
This magic line is made starting by a special magic square.
This is so elegant! I started at number 1 on the fourth square in 2nd line down, and just followed the numbers through according to your line. And yes, every line adds up to 260 in each direction and across the diagonals too. I like this very much indeed.
