Leonardo Da Vinci was one of the greatest artists of the High Renaissance period. In fact he was more than that; he was an innovator – the best example of the Renaissance Man. Not only was he an artist, but a scientist, mathematician and philosopher. One of his most memorable piece of work is the Vitruvian Man.
The Vitruvian Man defines the perfect man. Artists often had trouble with creating a perfectly proportioned model. If you look at early works of art, oftentimes the figure’s heads are too big or their legs are too long. It was Leonardo who stated that man was perfect in the form of a perfect circle and square.
Here, we have the Vitruvian woman, appropriately so as Wonder Woman. Not only does this cover pay homage to Leonardo, but it fortifies the stance that Wonder Woman is the personification of beauty and perfection.
