What we’re about to describe might sound a little complicated and maybe a bit ridiculous too, but please bear with us. What we have here is an actual gold-plated turd sculpture that was created following the principles of the Archimedean Spiral and The Golden Ration. Plated in 18k gold, the sculpture would set you back $350, but there’s also a cheaper matte charcoal or glossy black porcelain version that can be purchased for just $20.
Going into specifics about the turd’s geometry, we can tell you that it includes elements from the Archimedean spiral (r = a + bθ) and the Golden Ratio / Phi in triangles (a = 1, b = √φ, c = φ). Not sure who would want to buy the gold-plated version of the sculpture, but we have to admit that it does look very symmetrical.
