Inside-a-Nautilus Mandala

real nautilus shellOne of the most beautiful natural forms to me is the interior of Nautilus Shell. A simple spiral has both movement and perfection of form, and is complex despite the its easily discernible geometry. It shows the growth of the animal that grew within it, turn by turn. This particular mandala is one of my personal favorites. The Golden Ratio and the mathematics of nature and infinity are contained within its spiral. The form says it all. Inside-a-Nautilus Mandala

This mandala is also different from many I do in its subtle color. I love saturated color and forget sometimes how calming something softer can be.
