Description

Going from a point, to a series of circles, then to a series of triangles and finally to a square, Renaissance artist/geometer Albrecht Durer developed a geometric progression that ultimately generates a pentagon–the ancient symbolic representation of the quintessential nature of the human form and being. This PDF shows the geometric progression he may have taken, along with a discussion of the underlying traditional symbology.
