  50. “but  beauty,  he  thinks,  does  not  reside  in  the  proper

      proporGon  of  the  elements  but  in  the  proper  proporGon   of  the  parts,  such  as  for  example  that  of  finger  to  finger   and  all  these  to  the  palm  and  base  of  hand,  of  those  to   the  forearm,  of  the  forearm  to  the  upper  arm  and  of   everything  to  everything  else,  just  as  described  in  the   Canon  of  Polykleitos.  For  having  taught  us  in  that  work   all  the  proporGons  of  the  body,  Polykleitos  supported   his  treaGse  with  a  work  of  art,  making  a  statue   according  to  the  tenets  of  the  treaGse  and  calling  it,  like   the  treaGse  itself,  the  Canon.  So  then,  all  philosophers   and  doctors  accept  that  beauty  resides  in  the  due   proporGon  of  the  parts  of  the  body.”
