How to define a real beauty of human body? how it changed over centuries and across cultures? ‘The Body Beautiful in Ancient Greece‘ is an exhibition touring the world and showing us what was perfect thousands years ago and how the ideal of perfection changed and yet remained the same. More on the exhibit itself here and here.

While reading and going through the links it’s good to remember that even though the real perfection does not exist, it’s always good to strive for our own!

And seeing how I’m just watching ‘Da Vinci’s Demons,’ here’s his ‘Vitruvian Man,’ yet another attempt to create a perfect human!
