Buliding/Structures Strand 49 All Gizah Pyramids (photo by Ricardo Liberato). Ancient building in Uxmal, Mexico (photo by Pedro Sánchez). The Parthenon, Athens. 50 Chapter 3. Four Strands in the History of Geometry The construction of such structures requires very good knowledge of angles and proportions. Some of these proportions also had religious significance. One of the most popular proportions used in ancient architecture was the so-called golden ratio. There is much literature13 available about the golden ratio in architecture, nature, art, and other connections.

The largest possible triangle on your hyperbolic plane is called an ideal triangle. You can notice that the interior sum of the angles of this triangle is approaching zero. If you folded one ideal triangle on your model, you can try to make another one on the same hyperbolic plane. You will notice that you can try as hard as you want, but these triangles will be close to the same size. An ideal triangle in the hyperbolic plane: the sum of its angles approaches 0 degrees. 30 Chapter 2. What Can You Learn from Your Model?

Ancient drawings, paintings, sculptures, and ornaments are less than 100,000 years old—some found in Africa, Australia, the Middle East, and Europe. One of the oldest ornaments is a disc ornament in the British Museum, approximately 13,000 years old. It was found in Montastruc, France. Art/Pattern Strand 35 Over time, patterns possibly first used to mark the property of a certain family or tribe became more culturally charged—they were not solely geometric symbols arranged in some order, but they also reflected the environment where a particular culture was created.
