“The Vitruvian Man” by Leonardo Da Vinci Courtesy

His clams are not been backed any major research as of yet

Author Ashish Jaiswal has claimed that the drawing “The Vitruvian Man” by Leonardo Da Vinci may have been inspired by a Hindu text called Vishnudharmottara Purana, and the due credit has not been given all these years.

He made the claim in his book titled “Fluid,” reports The Times of India.

“The Vitruvian Man” is a celebrated artwork by Leonardo Da Vinci. It was created around 1490. 

Da Vinci himself credited 1st century BC Roman architect and engineer Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, as the first exponent of this idea, in his 13-30 BC book, Des Architectura.

According to author Ashish, Vishnudharmottara Purana contains the first ever extensive measurements of the perfectly proportionate human body. And despite the fact that western writers have known it, they have never given it due credit.

However, Ashish Jaiswal’s claim has not yet been backed by any major scientific evidence.
