Serious Fun! - The "Vitruvian Crawfish" painting by Craig Routh, is a humorous play on the famous "Vitruvian Man" illustration by Leonardo da Vinci.

In this lighthearted version, the artist illustrates the proportions of the crustacean and their relationship with geometry as described by the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius (as did Leonardo). The accompanying text, also written in mirror writing, is a detailed study of the proportions of the crawfish body (walking legs, rostrum, antennae, cheliped palm, etc.)

Bonus: The translation of the mirrored text is handwritten by the artist on the back of the card.
