Vitruvian Man by Leonardo Da Vinci, Italy.

3195
Leonardo Da Vinci was, literally and figuratively, the ultimate Renaissance Man.
Famed as one of the greatest of all painters, he was also an inventor, scientist, architect and mathematician.
His famous illustration of Vitruvian Man, named after the Roman architect who inspired him, describes the ideal human proportions (note how the outstretched arms are as wide as the man is tall), which both men believed should influence the design of buildings.
It also shows his attempts to “square the circle” – drawing a circle and square of the same area.
