Le proporzioni del corpo umano secondo Vitruvio (Italian), translated to The proportions of the human body according to Vitruvius, or simply L'Uomo Vitruviano, is a Renaissance drawing by Leonardo da Vinci c.1490. Notes based on the work of the architect Vitruvius are written above and below the drawing of a nude man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a circle and square. The artwork and text are sometimes called the Canon of Proportions, less often, Proportions of Man or The Picture of Health.
