Golden rectangles in the human body

These are screen shots from Disney's "Donald in Mathmagic Land", one of my favorite cartoons as a kid. I first Watched it when I was six or seven while my sister roller skated on the front porch. I've looked at several sources online to understand the golden section in the body, but this is the simplest and easiest to understand. The fact that the sides of a pentagram could fit perfectly into the proportions of a human body was so amazing to me as a child I couldn't believe it was true.


I've posted this video before but in case you missed it here it is again.
