Prevalent in the major works of Leonardo Da Vinci & underlying many of his design compositions, is the phi relationship (aka the Golden Ratio or the Golden Mean), a ratio of approx. 1:1.618, found in nature & creation, & inherent in the Fibonacci sequence. The Golden Rectangle, the Golden Triangle, & the Golden Pyramid, all based on the Golden Ratio, are all prominent in the work of Leonardo Da Vinci. He referred to the Golden Ratio as the "divine proportion".
