Recall that if a sphere has radius R, then its curvature is defined by Gauss to be 1/R2. The curvature of the hyperbolic plane with radius R is −1/R2. Notice that, in this case also, it is true that the larger the radius of the hyperbolic plane, the flatter it becomes, and if the radius becomes infinitely large, then the hyperbolic plane approaches the Euclidean plane. Different Radii 31 the sphere will be less than that of the circle you drew on the paper. The circle on the sphere with the same intrinsic radius encloses less surface.

Spirals possibly were copied as ornaments from nature, where they can be seen in some ferns and in the shape of a nautilus shell. Spectacular spirals can be found as fossils. Spirals were also used to decorate the beautiful ceramic pots made by the Native American people who lived about 1000 years ago in the lost city known as Cahokia in Illinois. Spirals were used to decorate Mycenaean Greek jars as early as the fifteenth century BC. Later, arcs and circles were used by the Greeks to decorate amphora (or storage vessels) and kraters (or two-handled jars for mixing wine with water) in the tenth century BC, known as the Protogeometric Period.
