Vitruvian Man


Hi hi sisters .... I dug out this very interesting picture, haha, someone had actually taken the effort to 'size' up Yong Joon! (thanks to the site/sister whom I got it from) Not surprisingly, our handsome prince is perfectly proportioned from head to toes :)


This reminds me of the drawing 'Vitruvian Man' by Leonardo da Vinci in 1487. It is based on the correlations of ideal human proportions with geometry. Based on ancient Roman architect Vitruvius' work, Da Vinci believed the workings of the human body to be an analogy for the workings of the universe. This is part of the long list on his study of the proportions of a (male) human body :

- a palm is the width of four fingers
- a foot is the width of four palms
. . . .
- the length of a man's outspread arms (arm span) is equal to his height
. . . .
- the maximum width of the shoulders is a quarter of a man's height
- the distance from the middle of the chest to the top of the head is a quarter of a man's height
. . . .
- the length of the hand is one-tenth of a man's height
. . . .
the length of a man's foot is one-sixth of his height

Hehe, I think you got the picture here :) Since I do not have the fortune (probably not even in my next life as I know the waiting list is pretty long already) to have such intimate access to our handsome prince. There is no way I can verify if he is a 'Vitruvian Man' or not, maybe you can be the judge here'?

Your verdict? Do we even need to ask? Hope you enjoy :)

Dear Jaime and Bae sisters:

Greetings on an epi-phenomenological day!

You are very kind in appreciating my writing. I appreciate the fact that you and the Bae sisters, like BB, Hyds, Myoce, accompanied me in this year long journey of researching and writing on Bae Yong Joon. You are also instrumental in perfecting it to excellence.

Thank you very much.

Perhaps, you can post your comments on it and the link or web address, but I do not think you can copy the whole academic paper in another posting.

Dear Jaime,
These pictures of our Yong Joon are so gorgeous! I can't help but love him with long hair. Sigh. I his that hair, don't you? But, he always looks fantastic. How did we get so lucky as to be part of his wonderful family? I don't know, but I am glad we are. Take care, dear. Love, Anna
