In short, the vacuous definition of a triangular space with undefined vertices, between two asymmetric legs with different angles, determines a technically unacceptable puzzle; as long as it has a reason for being.
It is the legs that should form the triangle, equilateral and large enough to reach with the feet at the actual base vertices, the largest circle.
Won't anybody wonder how that greatest anatomist and engineer could compromise his sketch, indulging in such kind of mistakes by unschooled?
“This work was not a portrait as much as a diligent depiction of a perfect male form designed by math, not shaped by life.…”
If so, this could confirm the above supposition; but it just remains to ask why no one among these specialists have noticed at least that they were facing four legs with the two abducted shorter, and four arms of which the two rotated were drawn longer. The earth's history of art is full of beautiful portraits and frescoes, including those of Leonardo; but when one ventures into the construction of a symbol that goes beyond the pictorial and even scientific dimension, an emblem that should bind the physical and spiritual factors of the human being in a unique symbolic matrix, he must be well aware of what he is producing, since it is intended – as can be seen – to dramatically influence the minds and hearts, i.e. the culture of people over time; and here what should have been a seal turned into a cage, just a reductive media.
The same goes for all those who promote it and exalt it… without seeing. The excerpts above are just a few citations; you can scan tens of ready made cloned articles like these through any search engine.
