not that challenging if you've read The DaVinci(the fag) Code! X is Vitruvius a roman architect. Da Vinci(the fag) named his accurate drwawing of the human man in honour of Vitruvius, i.e. the Vitruvian man. Vitruvius had said in his writings that human figure as being the principal source of proportion
