Clare in a Hoop
One can't help but think of Leonardo's Vitruvian Man here. Polykleitos' Kanon also comes to mind. I am indeed preoccupied with proportion, the relation of the parts to the whole, numbers, perfection, and man's relationship to nature. Thankfully though, Clare is not a man. The philosophy of idealism has its limits.
