THE VITRUVIAN MAN

 c. 1490

The Vitruvian man is both Leonardo’s most famous sketch and the most famous drawing in the world. It represents man’s proportion and how it relates to mathematics, specifically phi, or the “golden ratio.” 

The text translated to English Reads:

"Vetruvio, architect, puts in his work on architecture that the measurements of man are in nature distributed in this manner, that is:
  • a palm is four fingers
  • a foot is four palms
  • a cubit is six palms
  • four cubits make a man
  • a pace is four cubits
  • a man is 24 palms

and these measurements are in his buildings. If you open your legs enough that your head is lowered by one-fourteenth of your height and raise your hands enough that your extended fingers touch the line of the top of your head, know that the centre of the extended limbs will be the navel, and the space between the legs will be an equilateral triangle”.
