FIBONACCI KIMONO -- A Young Geisha Wears a Kimono Pattern Ahead of its Time by Okinawa Soba, via Flickr. Ca.1880s-90s. This is not your standard Kimono design. Drawing and cutting the paper stencils made from the wood and bark of the Mulberry Tree must have taken great patience, and show the skill of the unknown artist. The Japanese artist's use of these patterns based on the "Fibonacci Number" mathematics reflected in nature, predate Dutch artist M.C. ESCHER'S use of the same natural forms
