Picture Re-creation: Vitruvian Man

Around 1490, Renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci sketched Vitruvian Man to depict geometrically perfect human proportions. About 523 years later, I had an in-the-box idea (get it?) and gave this masterpiece a female makeover. Something tells me that da Vinci used different tools to aid him, as I found an iPhone camera and Microsoft Word’s “Remove Background” button quite helpful.

Here is what I affectionately call Vitruvian Woman:

As Protagoras said, “Woman is the measure of all things.” (Okay, maybe he said, “Man is the measure of all things.”)
