Vitruvian Man, also called the Proportions of Man, is a drawing by Leonardo da Vinci around 1490. It depicts a man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a circle and square. The drawing reflects the use of proportion and symmetry of the human body as a symbol of perfection and harmony and by extension, of the universe as a whole.
This pendant necklace can be for men or women. Its style is mathematical, universe, perfection and artistic. It comes in a clear package on cardstock with a meditative saying. It would make an ideal gift.
The link chain is 17 inches long with an extra 2 inch extender for length adjustment. The pendant is 7/8” inch in length, 7/8” inch in width, 1/16th inch in thickness, or height.
Both the pendant and chain are made of eco-friendly zinc alloy. It is non-toxic, 100% lead and nickel free. It is eco-friendly as it is one of the cleanest melting materials that can be processed without releasing harmful emissions into the air and can be recycled almost endlessly.
Zinc alloy is resistant to tarnish and as it is nickel free, it should not cause green staining on your skin. However like all fashion jewelry, this piece is meant to be worn only on occasion and may eventually tarnish. Do not wear in the shower or pool. Do not sleep in it or wear it continuously to prolong its luster. It will last longest if kept in a dry and dark place, such as a jewelry box.
