About the Vitruvian Man:
The “Vitruvian Man” (~1487) is an anatomical pen & ink study of the proportions of Man by Leonardo Da Vinci. Throughout history, mathematicians and scientists have sought to understand and create the ideal proportion, while artists such as architects, designers, and painters have applied them. Great examples of this are the “Golden Mean”, and the “Fibonacci Spiral”, originating from Ancient Greece with the likes of Pythagoras and Euclid, to the architecture and statues of the Roman Empire, and onwards to the present. Exemplary of the Renaissance, the Vitruvian Man study depicts the culmination of art, science, and math during the period, as seen by the relation of the human body (nature) to geometrical shapes, specifically the square and circle; da Vinci’s attempt at Man’s ideal proportion.
