“This is the story of the world’s most famous drawing: Leonardo da Vinci’s man in a circle and a square. Art historians call it Vitruvian Man, because it’s based on a description of human proportions written some two thousand years ago by the Roman architect Vitruvius.” To place a man inside those shapes was therefore to imply that the human body was the world in miniature.
