Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man is based on the ancient Roman idea that some proportions can be perfect, and that perfection is a property of geometry. Humans could also have ideal proportions, which is why Vitruvian Man is inscribed in both a circle and a square.

Another aspect of life that contains geometric proportions is music. Headline Shirts takes this idea and combines it with classic art (and Pete Townsend’s classic windmill move) to create the Da Vinci Rock Man shirt. Vitruvian man is seen here holding a guitar, forming a power with his left hand and holding his right hand in three positions, superimposed within the circle and square. It is about to come down and blare out six notes arranged in a pleasing proportion. Two of the world’s great art forms unite.

His hair is, just like in the original, long and shaggy, ready to be propelled out and down as he disengages from the 2D plane. He only has one set of legs, splayed out in a stable stance to keep him balanced in that circle, preventing him from coming to harm when the torque of his arm’s descent propels him forward. The shirt is white on black and ranges in size from 2 to 10.
