The Vitruvian Man, Leonardo Da Vinci

The Vitruvian Man is a concept of body proportions as described by Vitruvius in his work "De architectura". A Vitruvian Man is an image of a man that serves as an illustration of Vitruvius's precepts. The most famous Vitruvian Man is a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci from around 1490, which can be seen on the Italian version of the 1 euro coin. This figure is considered a symbol of humanism, which places man at the center of the universe.

In his writings, Vitruvius described the proportions of the human body and gave guidelines for the construction of temples. He explained that the human body fits snugly within both a circumscribed circle and a square, with the navel as the center. Although Vitruvius did not discuss the differences between men and women, he described the body in a general way.

Leonardo da Vinci's famous drawing of the Vitruvian Man was one of about 60 illustrations he made for "De divina proportione", a treatise by the mathematician Luca Pacioli. Leonardo based his work on Vitruvius' descriptions, but also conducted empirical research before creating the drawing. The drawing is considered part of Leonardo's anatomical research, which he had been doing for quite some time. Before this drawing, he systematically took body measurements of men.
