The bright yellow sunflower is always a warm and delightful sight. Vibrant yellow will brighten any day. Sunflowers are a common subject for oil paintings. They have been painted as realistic, abstract, and impressionistic styles. They work well as a subject because they have a brilliant color and intricate spiral pattern.
The sunflower’s spirals are very visible in this jigsaw puzzle. The clusters of flowerets are arranged as interconnected spirals. These spirals are arranged in a Fibonacci series. Fibonacci series have fascinated and inspired many mathematicians just as sunflowers have fascinated artists.
