About: Leonardo was very interested in many things. He studied space and astronomy. Our project has a large background of space to express this interest and to show his desire to observe, learn, and draw many different things that he learned. He put the knowledge he gained in his many journals. He was very inventive so we put many of his inventions into paint splotches on a paint pallet. Da Vinci also was interested in anatomy. He dissected human cadavers and drew sketches of the human body. Its been said that da Vinci even dissected a 100 year old man. The skull represents his studies in anatomy. Due to da Vinci’s artistic skill and scientific mind he was able to merge both talents to see the world in a whole new way.

About: Leonardo da Vinci was a man of many interests. One of these was human anatomy. He combined his scientific and artistic investigations to come up with similar diagrams that we use today. He used cadavers to closely study blood vessels, tendons and muscles. Before dissecting his first human cadaver, he used animals, and studied their anatomy. These animal studies made his first human studies anatomically inaccurate due to the difference in layout of the anatomy of a human versus oxen, horses, bears, or birds. Leonardo used his knowledge in human anatomy to make portraits as accurate as possible. Da Vinci would draw humans of different types, young, old, men or women. He had filled 50 notebooks of sketches and facts about his studies. Leonardo da Vinci was considered a genius because of his many interests.

He had an interest in geometry and many flying machines, like the wings he designed. He also designed the first auto firing weapon. It was set up so when it was first fired another set of barrels would go off after. Leonardo had many incredible inventions and ideas. He was advanced for his time.
