Cut a Grouped Circle in Half without Extra Borders Being Created

I created this intricate circle object that is made up of a group of objects.

enter image description here

I want to simply cut the circle and half but can’t seem to get what I want.

When I use the knife tool, it kind of works but it adds extra strokes to it and I don’t want.

enter image description here

Then tried using the pathfinder tool (minus) and I’m just I just left with the outside half- moon circle


Don’t modify the object, create a Clipping Mask instead.

Illustrator clipping mask example

  1. Draw a shape covering areas of the object you want to show
  2. Select the new shape and the intricate circle objects
  3. Object > Clipping Mask > Make
