Vitruvian Man Pendant
Stainless Steel Pendant made starting from our study of the graphic design of the Symbol. Created from metal using precision laser cutting, it is subsequently brushed and polished by hand. Finally, it is subjected to a natural ultrasonic cleaning treatment. The obtained finishing enhances the reflections on the surface giving a pleasant, uniform feeling to the touch.
The Pendant is furnished with the Geometria Sacra package with a non-woven envelope: made of a scratch-resistant material to protect the article, it has a re-closable opening that makes it perfect to be used again later. Inside the package, there is a "small meaning" with the personalized graphic symbol of the article and a brief description.
The particular design of the Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci deserved a metal realization faithfully expressed with full and empty. The flat figure is inserted in a square and in a circle, while in metal it is inserted into several squares and circles to make the rotary effect indicated by the "Corner" position of Man's Feet. The author's message indicates that optics are not only in the linear plane but live in multi-dimensional space: the human being is in a structure where the square becomes a cube and the circle becomes a sphere but also a toroid. The structure of the Corner is the basis of human realization and allows dimensional change from flat to solid. In fact we can also find it in the hand, between the thumb and the index with a width of 90° degrees value; or inside a meridian in the path of the sun and the measurement of time; or in constellations and zodiac; or we can find it as a sextant in relation to the stars for navigation; or on Earth in the coordinate system for latitude and longitude. But the inside of the Corner is not empty and it also indicates a space as a vector field, finally becoming a compass. We remember the concept that the name of the Numbers was given according to the number of hidden corners in their geometrically written graphic form. Also along the body, the design presents lines to the ankles, knees, hips, elbows and shoulders and hands. In the figure, there are 35 ° degrees Spaces between the arms and the legs, in fact, they are doubled: in this way, the body transforms the "T" shape into a "Y" shape forming a complete "X". These three Letters are in a mathematical relationship with all the geometric proportions of the solids, in the hidden structures of the Flower of Life and the multiplication table of the Nine, in the symbol of the Ankh and in the Fractals of Nature. It is a form of archetypal activator because it incorporates the ternary principle through which Nature multiplies itself by spiraling.
