### The Golden Ratio On Woman's Beautiful Face

In mathematics and the arts, two quantities are in the golden ratio if the ratio of the sum of the quantities to the larger quantity is equal to (=) the ratio of the larger quantity to the smaller one. The golden ratio is an irrational mathematical constant, approximately 1.6180339887. Other names frequently used for the golden ratio are the golden section (Latin: sectio aurea) and golden mean. Other terms encountered include extreme and mean ratio, medial section, divine proportion, divine section (Latin: sectio divina), golden proportion, golden cut, golden number, and mean of Phidias. The golden ratio is often denoted by the Greek letter Phi, usually lower case (φ). (Source: Wikipedia's Golden Ratio).
Many scientists mention that the Parthenon in the city of Athena (a temple of the Greek Goddess Athena) have a lot of proportion, which is the Golden Ratio. Various parties also believe that Leonardo Da Vinci used the Golden Ratio to paint his masterpiece, the Monalisa.

Golden Ratio also prevalent in every tangible thing in people's lives everyday. It can be found on shaped items: square, triangle, cylinder taper, and still so much. All of those shapes, must have at least a proportion close to the Extraordinary number, 1.6180339887 (or rounded up to 1.62).

And the amazing thing is that all shapes with the proportion who are in the Golden Ratio, must have two essential elements, namely the Strength and the Beauty. Just think about it, How many thousand years old are the Parthenon and the Pyramid?, And what a magnificent shape and huge size of those contructions.

What about the Woman's Beautiful Face?, Does it also have the Golden Ratio as well as the Parthenon and the Pyramid?. It does.

Human face, in this case is woman, has features with all sorts of wonderful shapes. In addition, the proportion of each shape on woman's face, customize with their respective functions.
Let's take a simple example, i.e. Emma Watson's beautiful face. Then take only one section, namely: the Length. The above line A, which represents the length of Emma Watson's jaw line, if divided by 1.62, will yield a line with length as the line B and the line C. And if the line B and the line C-shear sliding on Emma Watson's Face, apparently representing the width of Emma Watson's chin and eye.

The above example is just a very simple example, in which the sampling is very few, i.e. the line length of A, B, and C. It is believed that God who created woman's beautiful face, with its features in a very large number, certainly has the Golden Ratio. Hence the Golden Ratio is also called. the Divine Proportion.

very useful

2. Emma's face is an ideal of feminine beauty. What are Natalie Portman's facial measurements. If they don't measure up I'd have to say that the golden ratio is eurocentric. Natalie is definitely the ideal of semitic beauty.

1. Natalie Portman is not racially semetic. She is VERY much white-European.
