Fibronacci Golden Spiral In Orange & Chocolate! (update)

Leonardo.  The Parthenon.  Sanscrit Poetry.  Virgil.  Beethoven, Bartok, Schubert, Debussy, Bach and Satie.    What do these people and things have in common?

The Golden Spiral, also known as  the golden triangle, the golden ratio, the golden mean and the divine proportion, has been applied in film, poetry, music, architecture, and art, as seen above,  as a means of achieving  The Golden Proportion.

Carefully formulated upon the Fibronacci sequence,  an incandescent California Orange and an exotic French-distilled natural chocolate from South America  combine to become a superlative  fractal, containing the whole of itself within itself,  infinitely,  many times over.
