Time, space and DNA. Conceptual image of a human figure (Vitruvian Man) within a clock face against a background of a DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) double helix and a starry sky. This can represent concepts such as genetic engineering to slow ageing or to allow long space voyages. The human figure is based on drawings by Italian scientist and artist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). The figure is called Vitruvian Man, after Vitruvius, an Ancient Roman architect who stated that the human form with arms and legs extended could be fitted into both a circle and a square.
