Description

The model used is an over 65 million years old Ammonite Fossil from Madagascar.

The size is 147x120x18 mm.

The Ammonites were animals living in the sea. They first appeared about 450 million years ago and distinguish over 65 million years ago. Because of rising land levels, you will find many such fossils in Madagascar.

The interesting fact is that Ammonites grew from the center with the expanding ratio of 1:1.618 which is also called the Golden Ratio (phi).

Within mathematics this is known as sacred mathematics, and it is often connected to the Italian mathematician Fibonacci:

The reason why it is called sacred is that this numbers also connect with how things grow in the nature: Ammonites, flowers, galaxies, even the human body.

You will also see art based on this geometry. For example, Leonardo Da Vinci was both a great mathematician, a great inventor, and a great artist, and his "Vitruvian Man" has a lot of secrets:

Inside the Fossil’s cells it has grown Calcite crystals, and on the other side of the shell, you will see nice iridescent rainbow colors.

So, this NFT is a tribute to the love of nature and freedom and a tribute to sacred mathematics/the Golden Ratio.
