The Gate of the Sun

Here is a relic from ancient empire of Tiwanaku; the Gate of the Sun.

The Gateway construction can be represented mathematically by golden number; and relic itself was probably used as Sun and Venus calendar.

That is a beautiful way how civilization is connected to the nature.

Man has tried to understand nature and represent it in mathematical ways since ancient times. Looking back to the past, we found that ancient civilizations understood the beauty of nature, and that they expressed it by numbers. Its megalithic giant’s constructions and its iconography are still at the Bolivian plateau.
