This Easter Egg is homage to Leonardo Davinci's famous drawing The Vitruvian Man:

Which is sometimes referred to as Proportions of Man, or even Canon of Proportions. The drawing is held at Gallerie dell'Accademia in Venice, and is considered so valuable that it is only taken out for view on rare, special occasions.

This Easter Egg was discovered in a post at the Sacred International Forum. A member named ChinaCat created a topic to show the much larger amount of detail available in dungeons while using the Elite Graphics Textures available with the Collector's Edition version of Sacred 2. Only when looking carefully at the picture upon the ground can we see the reference made to Leonardo Davinci's famous Vitruvian Man with the image only being able to be clearly seen while using the Elite Textures Pack.
