Spinal Waves. Primate Change. OMU.


In the Analysis of Beauty 18th-century artist William Hogarth wrote a poem about a “waving and serpentine” S-shape as “the line of beauty” , which “leads the eye a wanton kind of chase”. At the core of this master’s inquiry lay simple principles of balance, symmetry, variety, simplicity, regularity and intricacy, which for him the S-shape perfectly embodied. The human spine possesses a similar line of beauty because it is also highly functional.
