The Nautilus is one of my favorite forms as it is the best representation of the golden ratio in the physical world. I started making them when I was homeschooling my children useing the Waldorf curriculum. Geometry is taught first taught through the geometery that exists in the phyiscal world expressing wisdom and a clear plan for all creation.
The Nautilus is mounted to 3/4 inch plywood with two circular cleets that are 2 feet apart on center.
This piece measures 42″ x 26″ x 1.75″ deep.
