Fibonacci number / 兎の問題

April 7, 2010

2007 Macau
design: Carlos Gonçalves

Another rabbit stamp from Macau – and this, time it is about Golden ratio.  Rabbit is representing Fibonacci number, by non-seasonal constant mating…  Each stamp shows four different theory to describe the Golden ratio exists in nature or rules sense of beauty.  The top centre Golden letter is ‘φ’, after Greek sculptor Phidias, who is thought the first user of this Golden ratio.

Macau is issuing their own stamps even after its return from Portugal to China in 1999.  They have unique mixture of West and East in their stamp range.  This one is designed with love and respect for findings, I think.
