The Vitruvian Man is a blend of the art and science from the Renaissance era. It was drawn by Leonardo Da Vinci around 1490, based on the work done by the architect Vitruvius. Vitruvius had the idea that architecture was an imitation of nature and so he studied the proportions of the human body, seen as the greatest work of art, to use in his designs. Da Vinci drew the perfectly proportioned man using Vitruvius’s notes as well as his knowledge of human anatomy and accordingly named the drawing the Vitruvian Man. The drawing includes a mirrored, written text by Da Vinci, expressing the work done by Vitruvius.
