A Mumbai Condo Gave Some 'Cover' to One Of Leonardo Da Vinci's Most Famous Drawings
Leonardo Da Vinci's famous 'Vitruvian Man' had another element added onto the drawing by a condo in Mumbai.

Leonardo Da Vinci was the original Renaissance Man, and has left humankind with blueprints to some great artwork, plans, and inventions, which are as relevant today as they were when he first conceptualized them.

One of the more prominent and famous among his sketches is "Vitruvian Man", which a study on "the proportions of the human body according to Vitruvius." The drawing is ink on paper and depicts a man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a circle and square. The drawing was one of the first ones depicting the proportions of the human body.

A look at the picture will remind you that you've definitely seen it before. But a condominium building in Mumbai added an extra detail to the painting. Can you spot it?

Yep, underwear. They censored the painting by putting underwear on one of Leonardo Da Vinci's most famous drawings. Twitter is amused at this rendition of the popular drawing.

Sanskari values over an actual depiction of art, is it? While this may seem like a 'cultural' move in India, it defies the point of depicting the 'perfect proportions of man.'
