Pentagonal geometry is the focus here, The pentagram is one of the most sacred forms in Sacred Geometry, it represents the human form, and manifested form in general, and encodes the Golden Ratio, phi ( 1 to 1.618), in it’s form, and also can be used to generate the Fibonacci Ratio. Fibonacci ratios appear in the ratio of the number of spiral arms in daisies, in the chronology of rabbit populations, in the sequence of leaf patterns as they twist around a branch, and a myriad of places in nature where self-generating patterns are in effect.
The sequence is the rational progression towards the irrational number embodied in the quintessential golden ratio. This most aesthetically pleasing proportion, phi, has been utilized by numerous artists since (and probably before!) the construction of the Great Pyramid. As scholars and artists of eras gone by discovered (such as Leonardo da Vinci, Plato , & Pythagoras), the intentional use of these natural proportions in art of various forms expands our sense of beauty, balance & harmony to optimal effect.
The background pattern are overlapping pentagons, with the subsequent layer being a series of overlapping Fibonacci spirals. with the uppermost layers being the pentagon/pentacle itself, visually showing the relationship between the pentacle and the Fibonacci Ratio.
