Abstract: We present high resolution (1''1×0''9) imaging of the proto-planetary nebula AFGL 2688 in the CO (J = 2-1) line using the IRAM interferometer. The observations reveal with unprecedented detail the structure and the kinematics of the gas ejected by the star over the past few hundred years and exemplify the mechanism by which point symmetries are imprinted on the structure of planetary nebulae at early stages of their formation.
