The Golden Ratio, also known as the Fibonacci Sequence, is a mathematical formula that is found throughout nature. It is a numerical sequence of 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and so on, with each number being the sum of the two preceding numbers. This sequence can be seen in the design of insects, the proportions of the human body, and the shape of a nautilus shell. Leonardo Fibonacci is credited with discovering this formula, although it is thought to have been around for much longer. By understanding the Fibonacci Sequence, artists can learn the rules of nature and use them to create beautiful works of art.
