Abstract

This paper discusses the Malaysia Keris design within the scope of the presence of the Fibonacci sequence component in design related to the art elements and design principles, which make it stand as an iconic item to symbolise Malaysian identity. The existing literature emphasised on the philosophical part of it. Using tool or instrument, of form analysis based on Fibonacci sequence spiral, has mapped the DNA of the design. The empirical findings show that the existence of Fibonacci sequences is significant in Malaysian keris design. Moreover, ‘emphasis’ has given the distribution of the visual weight of objects and value.
