Secrets of the Parthenon

If you have not seen PBS's rebroadcast of "Secrets of the Parthenon" you can watch it here. It is phenomenal. The Parthenon is the ultimate in humanism. All the parts are proportional to each other and all are derived from the proportions of the human body.

"Man is the Measure of All Things" 
-Protagoras (ca. 490-ca.420 BCE)
