3) Plato about harmony organic T-shirt

The quote is not a wrong attribution or a fake one.The original quote is found in Plato's Symposium, written around 400 BC: “For harmony is a symphony, and symphony is an agreement; but an agreement of disagreements while they disagree there cannot be; you cannot harmonize that which disagrees.”

Artwork here was designed to complement Plato's quote for a harmonious design. It is based on the golden ratio formula.

The golden ratio is a concept that was popularized in ancient Greece. It has become an icon in the context of art and design, and it is used to determine the proportions of artists' works.

The T-shirt is available in 5 colors and various sizes, 100% organic with water based 100% ecological inks, made with respect to the planet and human labor.
