105/365 | Vitruvian Trooper

Leonardo da Vinci was born on April 15, 1452, and today is his birthday!


Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man. In fact he was somewhat of a polymath. He was a painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist and writer.


Our troopers thought they would honour Leonardo by recreating his Vitruvian Man, but instead they created a Virtruvian Trooper!


(Although you may not believe it, this is one shot. There are two troopers being held by a wooden stick from the back. Check out the set up shot here).
