Image represents Fausto Veranzio’s parachute, sketch dubbed Homo Volans (“The Flying Man”). It’s one of illustrations in “Machinae Novae”. Veranzio’s masterwork, Machinae Novae (Venice 1595), contained 49 large pictures depicting 56 different machines, devices, and technical concepts.

Veranzio designed a parachute of his own, having examined Leonardo da Vinci’s rough sketches of a parachute.
