Vitruvian Man versus Virtuvian Man

The Vitruvian Man or simply L’Uomo Vitruviano is a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci that historians tell us he created around 1490. There are a lot of websites paying homage to this iconic image however we think ours is the coolest.

“The Vitruvian Man (ItalianLe proporzioni del corpo umano secondo Vitruvio, which is translated to “The proportions of the human body according to Vitruvius”), or simply L’Uomo Vitruviano (Italian pronunciation: [ˈlwɔːmo vitruˈvjaːno])”, “The drawing, which is in pen and ink on paper, depicts a man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a circle and square. The drawing and text are sometimes called the Canon of Proportions or, less often, Proportions of Man.”,”The drawing is based on the correlations of ideal human proportions with geometry described by the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius in Book III of his treatise De architectura. Vitruvius described the human figure as being the principal source of proportion among the classical orders of architecture. Vitruvius determined that the ideal body should be eight heads high. Leonardo’s drawing is traditionally named in honor of the architect.” [1]

Rather than retooling his iconography just for the sake of doing it, as some businesses do, we decided that ours would be rooted in meaning. Ours is therefore re-titled the VIRTUVIAN MAN as a take on a man of VIRTUE.
