Vitruvian Universal Man by DaVinci, Bronze finish. Leonardo DaVinci tended to compensate for his lack of education in the classical sense with an excess of empirical studies. The most famous of these is the Vitruvian Man so called as it is based on a description by Roman architect Vitruvius (around 85-20 BC) of the ideal human proportions. Da Vinci viewed the human body as a reflection of the universe: he saw the circle as the domain of human emotion whereas the square symbolized matter. A color picture of the original artwork by Leonardo DaVinci is included as is a description in multiple languages. Made from resin and metal. Measures: 8.5 H x 8.5 W x 1.75 D.
