For example in the diameter of consecutive turns of a snail shell. This work illustrates this as a sequence of turned beech spheres of 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 and 13cm (5+inches) diameter. In addition to which the distance between the spheres is also in the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8 cm. These are mounted on a 2.5cm x 17.5cm (maximum) x 54.5cm tapered English oak plinth.
