Vitruvian Mouse

© David Deen 2006 Medium: graphite/digital Size: 4" x 5"

Artist Comments: Everybody knows Da Vinci's iconic Vitruvian Man, even if they don't know it's called the Vitruvian Man. Less well known is the Vitruvian Mouse, which shows the hidden geometry in our rodent friends. This may help explain the long symbiotic relationship we have had with mice over the ages, as they have taken part in our folklore, genetics, pharmaceuticals, astronautics, and literary symbolism, among other things. In return, we have given them an environment in which to breed like, well, rats.

In truth, this was created for my wife for a science talk at MIT.
