Snail says Slow Down

Posted by
Jason Kravitz (Brussels, Belgium) on 7 August 2007 in Animal & Insect.

While visiting some crop circles in the UK last week we found this little snail in the pressed down wheat.

The geometry and relation of the patterns in many crop circles incorporate the golden ratio, derived from the Fibonacci sequence also referred to as sacred geometry. The spiral in this snail shell is also an illustration of this pattern or ratio.

The snail served as another metaphor to me to slow down and process rather than continuously rushing from one thing to another.
