The Vitruvian man

The Vitruvian man (ca. 1490)

Da Vinci tended to compensate for his lack of an education in the classical sense with an excess of empirical studies. The most famous of these is the Vitruvian Man so called because it is based on a description of the ideal human proportions by Roman architect Vitruvius (around 85-20 BC).
