Donald in Mathmagic Land spends much of its time showing the power of the golden ratio, first by demonstrating how it appears in a pentagram; not just once, but many times over. There is even a shape based on this beautiful proportion, and it is called the golden rectangle. But the golden ratio does not only turn up in abstract shapes—you can also find it in buildings, paintings, shells, trees, ferns and in us, too!
