Close-Up of Belt Buckle
This solid 18K gold buckle set was a custom order for Chris. It is one of Neil's many explorations into the Golden Section.
"The open-ended curve of the spiral gives a sensation of continuous motion--of life, in fact. In The Curves of Life, Sir Theodore A. Cook (1867-1928), English author and editor, finds that the spiral or helix may lie at the core of life's first principle--that of growth. The spiral is fundamental to the structure of plants, shells, and the human body; to the periodicity of atomic elements and to an animal's horns; to microscopic DNA (the double helix) and to the Andromeda nebula."
"The spiral is a key to understanding organic nature, and perhaps to the living
creations of the human mind. The spiral's fundamental mathematical expression is
Ø, or ... (mathematical formula omitted)
(=1.618), the Ratio of Pheidias, or Golden Section, or the Divine Proportion, as it
has been variously termed through history. It occurs repeatedly in the productions
of men: Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Gothic architects knew and admired its properties;
Renaissance artists incorporated it into their theories. Leonardo designed spiral
staircases and studied spirals in waves and hair; consciously or unconsciously.
Botticelli, Hals, and Turner composed proportional to Ø."
