Can you decipher the code ?

The Louvre is a Great Art Museum in Paris holding the greatest art pieces like \(Mona Lisa\) , \(Venus de Milo\), \(Winged Victory\) etc. The renowned curator of the museum has been violently murdered in the Grand Gallery. Harvard Professor and symbiologist Robert Langdon and curator's granddaughter Sophie Neveau(who works in the cryptography department) are summoned to decipher the following code which the curator wrote just before his death :

                                           13-3-2-21-1-1-8-5
                                            O, Draconian devil !
                                                 Oh, lame saint !
                                       P.S. Find Robert Langdon

As Bezu Fache, the detective, find what the curator was trying to say ? HINT : Find sth about the no. PHI i.e. 1.618 . You have to decipher the code word by word.

The numbers 13, 3, 2 , 21, 1, 1, 8, 5 are numbers of Fibbonacci sequence. This assures the curator that the cryptography department is summoned. In the last line, P.S. doesnot stand for PostScript but for Princess Sophie. Each consecutive no. in the fibonacci sequence when divided by the last number gives the famous number PHI :- 1.618 which has a great importance in the art field. And the lines O, Draconian devil ! Oh, lame saint ! when arranged stand for Leonardo Da Vinci ! The Mona Lisa !
