One of the world's most famous drawings, Leonardo's 'Vitruvian Man' gives visual form to the proposal of the Roman architect Vitruvius that a man can be made to fit inside a circle and a square. Toby Lester traces the history of this idea and its importance in implying that the human body was a cosmos in miniature - which inspired Leonardo to peer deep into body and soul in a quest for a godlike perspective on the world as a whole.
