Why is the golden ratio aesthetically pleasing

The Golden cut

Things of everyday life are found in a balanced ratio of length to width. The application of the so-called "golden section" is one way of determining aesthetically pleasing proportions. For this purpose, the side lengths of an object to be processed are brought into a ratio of 1: 1.618.

A little excursion into history:
The temples on the Acropolis were built according to this ratio and Leonardo da Vinci wrote a work in 1509 about the "divine proportions". The ratio of 1: 1.618 can be proven again and again.

The more proportions in a person's face to each other in the golden ratio, the more aesthetically pleasing this face is for the viewer. The face gives our counterpart the first impressions. How does sympathy with a stranger develop? The common opinion on this is: through eye contact. But that's not true! The eyes alone cannot be viewed in isolation.

So the impression is the whole face with its proportions. It is subconsciously about the relationship between eyes and mouth, nose and lower face, upper lip and lower lip, etc. The teeth show up when you first smile.

And here the first impression can be seriously disturbed by an incorrectly proportioned anterior tooth restoration.

When you look at pictures of models, you will be amazed at what the golden ratio is: eye width to mouth width, upper lip to lower lip, the width of the nose to the width of the mouth, etc.
