The Parthenon – probably the most famous ancient Greek temple in the world – has a façade which is a Golden Rectangle. But Euclid - the famous geometer who documented the concept of ‘the Golden Ratio’, was as yet unborn. In this richly illustrated lecture John looks at the evidence for and against this oft-quoted idea.  JOHN SHERLOCK runs a business advising the owners of historic houses and landscapes, counting the National Trust and the Crown Estate among his clients.

Members and regular attenders will know that Arts Society Sparkenhoe talks are of an extremely high standard with excellent Arts Society approved speakers so prepare to be enlightened!
