Gold Puzzle 63 6G

Philippe Leblanc

(The genealogy puzzle)
The Family Puzzle is based on successive divisions of a rectangle abiding by the Golden Section rules.
The geometric and aesthetic balance generated by the Golden Section, which conserves relative length and width proportions indefinitely, has fascinated our forebears since ancient times.

The Family Puzzle represents a perspective view on time past, on the lives ofthe generations that came before ourselves.The puzzle is splitdiagonally, originating in the smaller ‘gold’ rectangle representing the subject.

This diagonal line separates the subject’s paternal and maternal lineage.
A new gold rectangle is created and divided for each generation.
Each individual is represented by a unique shape, but all these shapes in one generation cover the same area, all equally important, yet all different.

An overview of a family’s history, on our ancestry, invites us to ponder over the transmission of life, of ideas, of legends and secrets. Whether one piece of the puzzle has a name or not, ancestors did exist and thus are represented.
