From Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, the perfect smile of the Mona Lisa to Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, the study of the Golden Ratio has inspired thinkers of all disciplines like no other number in the history of Mathematics.

…which led to works of absolute harmony, beauty and mastery!

What is the Golden Ratio?

Since ancient times, the Golden Ratio has intrigued many of the greatest mathematicians, artists, architects and even musicians. A proportion which has been merited the title of ‘the divine ratio’ in search for perfection in art and nature.

We not only find it on the petals of roses or in the perfect smile of the Mona Lisa, but it is also evident in the design of ancient structures dating as back as the Pyramids. It is also perfectly implemented in Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and Mozart’s compositions.
