In The Sign of Three, Sherlock superimposed John’s face over that of Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man.
This drawing is a depiction of the ideal proportions of man as based on the aesthetic canon of the architect Vitruvius.
"Vitruvius believed that an architect should focus on three central themes when preparing a design for a building: firmitas (strength), utilitas (functionality), and venustas (beauty).
But the theory of venustas (or beauty) is a very complicated one.
Vitruvius thought that a timeless notion of beauty could be learnt from the ‘truth of nature’; that nature’s designs were based on universal laws of proportion and symmetry.
He believed that the body’s proportions could be used as a model of natural proportional perfection.
He wrote of the way ancient scholars examined many examples of ‘well-shaped men’ and discovered that these bodies shared certain proportions. He showed that the ‘ideal’ human body fitted precisely into both a circle and a square, and he thus illustrated the link that he believed existed between perfect geometric forms and the perfect body.
In this way, the body was seen as a living rulebook, containing the fixed and faultless laws set down by nature.”
excuse me while I hyperventilate.
