Art ideas for Fedora 11 (grub, boot, splashes, window decorations, button styles etc...)

I think work on the Golden Ratio will be good.

I've got just a question, using the nautilus theme maybe can distort the original theme to another, Nautilus comes from another story, or not?
If the concept is the spartan concept what about the golden Hellenic Age in Greece?

The Hellenic age was the top of the acient greece time and it spouse the first concept as well, maybe we can use a steam punk, futuristic theme for the old art.
Or we can use the Olimpic Theme born in Greece, talking about Olimpic so far was created to unify all the greece's people as a nation and not as a lot of State-city, in peace and happy moment, like Fedora unify people all over the world.

Technically the vote was for the ship but I am sure (and the reaction 
after the announcement are a reassurance) most people voted for the Spartan.

So I am thinking about the Golden ratio[1], used a loot in the Ancient 
Greek architecture, notably on the Parthenon and probably a graphic 
based on the Golden ratio would be fit.

Not sure what would be the best option, but how about a nautilus 
blueprint? This way we have a link with Greece (golden ratio), water 
(nautilus) and steampunk (blueprint). And maybe throw in some 
mathematical formulas for additional geekiness.
