The human figure: the right proportions

| | ,

Often, if we ask our kids to draw a figure, it is built according to proportions intuitive, motivated by the idea of ​​”figure” that is proposed to us as children, with the head much larger than normal and the smaller body, with the arms and legs short …
It ‘s always fun to bring the Canon of Polykleitos and see the faces incredulous asking: “Our head corresponds to one eighth of our body? Is it really so small? There must be some mistake!”
So the only way to tell is to look at the reality and test it!
