The Golden Ratio is the basis that most people use in determining what they perceive to be beautiful. This is often done on a subconscious level by the person viewing the object, but the creator, such as an artist or architect, purposefully designed the object to reflect the mathematical proportions of the Golden Ratio. The Golden ratio is 1 to 1.618. Leonardo da Vinci's illustrations of polyhedra in De divina proportione (On the Divine Proportion) and his views that some bodily proportions exhibit the golden ratio have led some scholars to speculate that he incorporated the golden ratio in his paintings. Salvador Dalí, influenced by the works of Matila Ghyka, explicitly used the golden ratio in his masterpiece, The Sacrament of the Last Supper. The dimensions of the canvas are a golden rectangle.
