Mouseion statue of The Vitruvian Man
The man of Vitruvius
Famous drawing by Da Vinci converted into a 3d statue. Leonardo Da Vinci made the drawing around 1490 as an illustration of a treatise of a mathematician of his time and it was nothing more than a study of the human body, sketched on the basis of the proportions shown in the work The Architecture of the Roman writer Vitruvius.
The man of Vitruvius is made of white resin with a black frame and is only a few centimetres deep.
- Under the base plate there is a mark for licensed objects.
- The gift box contains a small certificate.
- Height 23 cm
