Stimulating IntellectGiving Birth to  Imagination

The Golden Spiral is a fabulous compositional rule.  The fern is just one example of the Golden Spiral found in nature.  Sea shells are another.  Flowers yet another.   The Golden Spiral is one component of the Golden Ratio of composition. The Golden Spiral is a powerful compositional tool, not easy to master, but fun to practice and observe. Did you know that iPhones, credit cards, and Kit-Kats are all designed using the Golden Ratio?
