Dynamic symmetry urged every painter or writer to mark his or her surface before beginning his or her drawings, or applying a paint of canvas.

The symmetry also gives a provision of different methods of both natural and creative worlds. Navajo, being immersed deeply in his arts, was greatly supported by the symmetrical form (Titon et al. Hambidge, was an author and teacher, whose book The Elements of Dynamic Symmetry first appeared in Dynamic Symmetry is the natural design methodology based on Nature's growth spiral.

Hambidge took the expression 'dynamic symmetry' from the Plato's writings, and one of his information sources on classical proportion was the first-century. Dynamic Symmetry is an armature which is geometrically designed to promote continuity, flow, rhythm and balance within artistic design.

For some reason this subject is polarizing. Everywhere Pole: Mystics claim these proportions hold the secrets of the universe from the growth of plants and animals to the formations of. Within the range of the symmetry of form in the thematic plane, dynamic symmetry is characterized by the transitional form of the binary form a-a-b-a, the five-part form a-b-a-c-a, the rondo A-B-A-C-A, or the rondo in the Violin Concerto K.V.
