The Vitruvian Baby

Does this image look familiar?

Thought I'd try something light-hearted with my young daughter, Lauren a couple of years back.

Based on Leonardo Da Vinci's "The Vitruvian Man", a study depicting the human body and proportions with a host of other permutations:





I now introduce my version of this famous depiction . . . "The Vitruvian Baby"








You will recall Jacques Sauniere's corpse lying on the floor of the Louvre as described by Dan Brown in The Da Vinci Code, and as seen in the movie of the same title:



The human body in this position resembles a pentagram - a five-pointed star, a symbol of perfection, along with many other meanings explored in The Da Vinci Code.


My daughter looked a little uncomfortable didn't she?!
