The Vitruvian Man In 1490, da Vinci drew a sketch that would later become among the most famous in the world – a figure presented in two positions, intended to display the ideal proportions of the human body and the connection between anatomy, geometry and art. The square emphasizes the identical dimensions of arm span and height, while the circle, with the navel in the middle, blocks the spread arms and legs. True to da Vinci, even his seemingly “technical” sketch became a work of art and some even claim that the Vitruvian Man’s face is a self-portrait. The text accompanying the sketch is translated from the classic book written by Vitruvius (15-80 B.C.). This fact gave the sketch its name – “The Vitruvian Man”.


On the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, we are proud to present a fascinating and colorful exhibition at The First Station in Jerusalem, devoted to the universal genius; a Renaissance man whose infinite curiosity is matched only by his power of invention.

Come see the world through the eyes of one of the greatest inventors in history; a scientist, a mathematician, an engineer, an inventor, a painter, a sculptor, and an architect who was considered hundreds of years ahead of his time.

In this exhibition, dozens of giant machines inspired by Da Vinci’s plans and sketches will be exhibited in Israel for the first time, alongside new technologies that will create a fascinating and mesmerizing visual experience. Drawings, sketches, giant figures, moving physical models, holograms, screenings, and activities – all in a fascinating and interactive atmosphere suitable for the entire family – both young and old.

The exhibition will be on display at the First Station in Jerusalem during the months of July-October 2020
