The Vitruvian Man And Da Vinci’s Merkaba


The Vitruvian Man is a famous drawing by Leonardo da Vinci made in 1490. The drawing reflecting the uses of proportions and symmetry of the human body as a symbol of perfection and harmony.

The drawing  made from ink and watercolor. His size : 34.3 cm -24.5 cm in length and width. He is now part of the collection of the Academy Gallery (Gallerie dell’Accademia) in Venice. It describes the shape of a naked man in two modes placed on top of each other, with his hands outstretched to the side, the figure simultaneously surrounded by a circle and a square. The drawing and text often called “canon relationship”.

One can describe the human body as a tool used by the harmonious action between the high and low chakras and combining them. Beautifully realized that Leonardo da Vinci, when placed the human body in Star of David (try to imagine a human figure, head, and hands and feet slices in a pattern Star of David). Human nature, then, is to combine the spiritual world the material world. Know how to find a higher purpose and insights in every daily action, but also know to express spiritual messages that he receives in a physical way. We live in a world where the only possible connection between the physical and spiritual world and our essence in this life is to create the connection. On the one hand not only be spiritual and yet was not only physical, but the ability to live everyday with the information that we do receive in a spiritual essence.
