Vitruvian Man Illusion Knit

Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic Vitruvian Man is instantaneously recognized on sight, but not as often by name. Intended to illustrate how man represents perfect proportions, the pleasing symmetry and antique look make the perfect image for an Illusion Knit.

I combined black and dark brown yarns together and paired those with a deep gold to simulate da Vinci’s pen and ink drawing on yellowed paper. (Scroll to the bottom of the page to see Vitruvian Man in motion.)
