Vitruvian Man is probably Leonardo da Vinci's quintessential drawing. Scholars, art historians, scientists and philosophers have interpreted the symbolism in countless ways. This study of man was drawn by the master in the Renaissance around 1492.
Leonardo believed the workings of the human body to be an analogy for the workings of the universe. It is also thought by some that Leonardo symbolized the material existence by the square and spiritual existence by the circle. Thus he attempted to depict the correlation between these two aspects of human existence.
The drawing has been made into this lovely pendant, measuring 7/8 inch wide and 1-1/4 inch long. Made of vitreous enamel, each pendant is assembled by hand, so please allow for some variability.
Equally beautiful as jewelry or as an art element in a shrine or assemblage, this unique piece is conservatively priced for such elegant craftsmanship.
