Vitruvian Man Action Figure
Leonardo da Vinci sketched an aeshetic concept which suggested that the ideal human proportions are particular fractions that can fit within a square lying over a circle. This was in keeping with design principles established by the Roman architect Vitruvius. Hence Leonardo's famous image is called Virtruvian Man.
Rocket News 24 reports that Figma, the Japanese toymaker which previously brought us action figures shaped like the Venus de Milo and Michelangelo's David, now offers Leonardo's Vitruvian Man as an action figure.
