The Vitruvian Man is a drawing made by Leonardo da Vinci in 1490 accompanied by notes based on the work of the Roman architect Vitruvius. The drawing depicts a man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a circle and square. It represents da Vincis concept of the ideal human body proportions and is kept in the Galleria dellAccademia, in Venice, Italy. Lets talk about a much more modern invention done by Wilhelm Röntgen in 1895 the X-rays. He discovered their medical use when he made a picture of his wifes hand on a photographic plate formed due to X-rays. The photograph of his wifes hand was the first photograph of a human body part using X-rays. Both works have advanced the understanding of the human body by leaps and bounds.
