The Vitruvian Man is a world-renowned drawing created by Leonardo da Vinci around the year 1487, often used as a high symbolic meaning of ‘man as measure of all things’. It depicts a nude male figure in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and simultaneously inscribed in a circle, symbolising the spiritual existence, and a square symbolising the material. We have seeked to introduce a twist to it, the sexual existence, by a studied positioning of the light source in the man’s erotic zone.
