This Leonardo da Vinci figurine is based on the Vitruvian Man, so called because it is based on a description of the ideal human proportions by Roman architect Vitruvius. The study of ideal proportions illustrates the mingling of art and science during the Renaissance perfectly. Da Vinci viewed the human body as a reflection of the universe. He therefore referred to his anatomical studies as cosmografia del minor mondo.
This Vitruvian Man figurine, made from resin and metal, includes a colour picture of the original artwork by Leonardo Da Vinci and a description in multiple languages.
