The Golden Ratio
The beginnings of the Golden Ratio dates back to the Roman era, where sculptors of sacred temples had to conform to the ideal human proportions laid down by ancient scholars.
Later Leonardo da Vinci in 1487, with his fascination for the human body, drew the human figure and called it the Vitruvian Man. He said, “man is a model of the world.”
It was Euclid, a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the “father of geometry” who had first defined the ratio in 300 BC.

The Golden Ratio concept: Two quantities are in the Golden Ratio; if the ratio of the sum of the quantities to the larger quantity is equal to the ratio of the larger quantity to the smaller one.
