Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man: Adapated Version

Most people know the famous drawing by Leonardo da Vinci showing a man in a circle. It is called Vitruvian Man. Vitruvian Man is a study of the proportions of the body. Vitruvian Man is actually a facinating work and the accompanying text was written in mirror writing, meaning you had to hold it to a mirror to read it.

Anyway, for the first time, I have seen an "adapted version" of the drawing, showing a man with amputations. While he is no longer proportional, he is a man none the less. I think it would be cool to show the drawing with prostetic limbs.

I found the adapted of Vitruvian Man on Co LeDahu's website
