Who created symmetry (2)?


Not long ago I published the post WHO CREATED SYMMETRY?

I expressed there several original thoughts about symmetry.

One of them: “As a rule beauty is not symmetrical.”

Another: “… symmetry … shows limits of human imagination.”

Please read more in this old post and then take a look at the picture below.

What’s your opinion?

Who created symmetry?


Before submitting entries to this challenge I searched for definition of the word “symmetry”.

Here is one that I like (from The Free Dictionary): “The correspondence of the form and arrangement of elements or parts on opposite sides of a dividing line or plane or about a center or an axis.”

Then I thought: “Where do we meet symmetry?” Is symmetry natural? Is it created by people?”

It looks to me that nature has only a few symmetrical things on this planet. As a rule beauty is not symmetrical. The rule of thirds in photography confirms it.

I think that symmetry (even as beautiful as some of my digital paintings) actually shows limits of human imagination.

Now it’s time to show my entries in this challenge.
