The Golden Mystery

I think I must have been channeling Euclid or Michaelangelo when I got this notion to create a painting with about 6 or 7 Golden Mean rectangles, each with the square showing. Be prepared to exercise your brain and remember your geometry.

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 aspect ratio as the first. Square removal can be repeated infinitely, in which case corresponding corners of the squares form an infinite sequence of points on the golden spiral, the unique logarithmic spiral with this property.
