Golden Section

The Gothic Arch theme for this week is Gold. I think you normally put a vintage image on these arches; I have used a copy of Da Vinci's vitruvian man, which is vintage, but not a photo. I hope it's allowed! The other images were also drawn or written by Leonardo.
The numbers follow the Fibonacci sequence - mathematical harmony related to the golden section, used in art and architecture.
The colours are much more golden irl, and the arches more obvious.

This was the first think I thought of also when this challenge came up this morning. The Golden Mean is very important in all things ART. Lovely work.

Love your theme! I don't think there is a 'rule' to use vintage photos on the arches, only rule I know of is to have fun making arches *lol*
Gorgeous arch!
