Thanks justina, for posting 3 great pieces of documentary.

Following the amazing latest BBC documentaries hosted by Marcus du Sautoy, here some more  insights on the numbers and patterns and culture  from Ron Eglash, at TED, 2007. “Ron Eglash is an ethno-mathematician: he studies the way math and cultures intersect. He has shown that many aspects of African design — in architecture, art, even hair braiding — are based on perfect fractal patterns” (http://www.ted.com/speakers/ron_eglash.html).
