Geometry reflects the patterns of underlying order that are found all throughout life. Color is the life force itself.

This fractal design is based on the Fibonacci sequence. It begins with a golden rectangle that has two sides built from adjacent Fibonacci numbers. The smaller side is then used as the longer side for golden rectangles that are attached to each of the four corners of the previous rectangle. The same process is applied to each successive generation, with a total of eight generations. As the generations progress, the design expands both outward and inward as smaller rectangles begin to overlap on top of each other.
