We don’t always appreciate how much geometry can be found in nature. The golden ratio, which is related to the Fibonacci Sequence, influences the number of petals on a flower, the spiral pattern of a pinecone, the form of sea shells, and more

But Kerby Rosanes, a Phillipines-based illustrator, can see the geometry in almost anything. His latest series, "Geometric Beasts," combines abstract shapes with realistic animal bodies to create geometric hybrid fauna. 

The bodies of rearing horses, howling wolves, and soaring birds are half-covered in armor of triangles, rhombuses, and hexagons.

Rosanes’s intricately sketched animals are captured in mid-flight, with their basic shapes breaking away to reveal feathers and fur.
