summary The research on the different morphological representations of Nature throughout History is only a general analysis of forms. In this case, the concepts of mandala and fractals will be found in different productions distant from one another both in time and culture. In the relationship between Art and Geometry, the mandala stands out as a way of representing nature, the one and the multiple, diversity and unity; a study of its manifestations in astrological calendars, in the rose windows of the Gothic cathedrals and the Tibetan images. The Theory of Fractals, in its differences from the Euclidean concept of dimension, will lead us to an interpretation of the “among”, the fractional, the sinuous, a continuos manifestation in nature itself; besides, bearing in mind the internal homothety, a pythagorical concept of the harmony of forms. A general look into the different modalities of representation of the same subject. The act of thinking, the reasoning on a process of geometrization on which man has always placed himself; an attempt to understand as well as to imitate what surrounds him.
