Golden Section

30 31 ancienT of Days tombs, temples and pyramids Like many ancient high cultures, the ancient Egyptians employed a sophisticated canon of number, measure and harmonic proportions in their magnificent monumental pyramids, temples and artwork. The simple ratios and grids they employed included the 2 diagonal of a square, the 3 bisection of an equilateral triangle, and the 5based golden section, which appears both as golden ratio Fibonacci rectangles and in its pure pentagonal form. Fibonacci golden section approximations are suggested in the analyses of Hakoris chapel 85 and the Dendera Zodiac 53 opposite. Moses built the Ark of the Covenant to a plan of 53 2.5 x 1.5 cubits. Also note the pentagonal analyses apparent in the plan of the Osirian and the stunning statue of Menkaure pharoanic builder of the smaller of the three Gisa pyramids. The famous mask of Tutankhamen lends itself to a similar analysis. Golden proportions and their Fibonacci approximations are found in Olmec sculpture De La Fuente and Maya temple and art panel ruins in Palenque C Powell. A 53 mandala below centre regularly appears in Mesoamerican sculpture, architecture and codices below Isapa Stela 89, Olmec Monument 52, from Norman.
