I'll be honest, I don't know what vitruvian means, but I know I really like this card. What a great job.

Gillian Hamilton said...

Hi kardkrazy,
to be honest, I didn't know either till I researched a little.
this sketch by da Vinci, is based on the writtings of an Ancient Roman Architect named VITRUVIUS.
he was the one who made a Study of Proportions, of the human body.
it's quite long, but this is the a few of the proportions..
a palm is the width of 4 fingers,
a foot is the width of four palms,
the length of the hand is one-tenth of a man's height... and so on.. facinating really...
So now we both know..lol!!!
oh and i'm glad you liked my ATC :o)
