The Table Museum is a series of figma figures based on famous works of art that almost anyone would recognize! The fifth piece of art to join the series is the Vitruvian Man which was originally illustrated by the man called the 'Genius of the Century' -Leonardo Da Vinci. The drawing made in the Renaissance period illustrated the correlations of ideal human proportions with geometry and was referred to as the 'harmony of the human body'. Now you can enjoy Da Vinci's work as an articulated figure with all sorts of potential!
Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out the classic 'Vitruvian Man' pose and various other action poses. A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability. A special panel to recreate the full effect of the drawing is included. Alternate chest and upper arm parts, thigh parts and wrist parts are also included for various poses. An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
TheVitruvian Manis adrawingbyLeonardo da Vinciaround 1490.It is accompanied by notes based on the work of the architect Vitruvius. 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 Proportionsor, or Proportions of Man.
The drawing is based on the correlations of ideal human proportionswith geometry described by the ancient Roman architect Vitruviusin 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.
