In this paper, a configuration with n = (g) points in the plane is described. This configuration, as a matroid, is a Desargues configuration if d = 5, and the union of (~) such configurations if d > 5. As an oriented matroid, it is a rank 3 truncation of the directed complete graph on d vertices. From this fact, it follows from a version of the Lefschetz Zariski theorem implied by results of Salvetti that the fundamental group ~ of the complexification of its line arrangement is Artin's puredoi:10.1016/0012-365x(95)00152-m fatcat:li33gjt3rnaj3msebhh3twsng4
