Successive golden rectangles divide a golden rectangle into
squares, creating a logarithmic spiral known as the golden spiral.
It appears in natural phenomena and has been used in art and design
throughout history.

Golden rectangle
A golden rectangle
is a rectangle whose side lengths are in the golden ratio,
onetophi, that is, approximately 1:1.618. A distinctive
feature of this shape is that when a square section is
removed, the remainder is another golden rectangle, that is,
with the same proportions as the first. Square removal can
be repeated infinitely, which leads to an approximation of
the golden or Fibonacci spiral.
