MAA Found Math 2011 - Week 32


MAA Found Math: "Spirale," a piece of glasswork by glassblower Lino Tagliapietra in the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York. Photo by Julian Fleron (Westfield State University) who wrote, "He [the artist] says he was inspired by 'a nautilus shell.' To my eye the opposing spirals are much more reminiscent of the Fibonacci spirals that are found in sunflowers and many other phylotactic growth patterns."
