The Vitruvian Man is a drawing made by Leonardo da Vinci around 1490, it depicts a man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a circle and square. The drawing is based on the idealized human body proportions described by the Roman architect Vitruvius.   “Lathe of Heaven” is a representation of one of the two drawn Da Vinci figures.    The title of the piece is borrowed from a novel by Ursula K Le Guin.   

“Lathe of Heaven” is carved from a single block of white marble from Vermont, mounted via turning pin to a black marble base.
