A couple of months ago, we visited Maraya Art Center in Al Qasba, Sharjah. On our way out after viewing the art works, we saw a small library and we decided to stop by for some reading. We saw this book titled Inventions: Leonardo Da Vinci. It is filled with notes and 3D illustrations of the Renaissance Man's science and inventions.
As we turn the pages, intricate paper engineering blew us away. Check this out:
Leonardo kept a series of journals in which he wrote almost daily, as well as separate notes and sheets of observations, comments and plans which were left to various pupils and were later bound.
The man who painted Mona Lisa and The Last Supper was also famous for his concept on robots or human machines.
Da Vinci's concept of flying.
His studies on human anatomy allowed him to dissect corpses in Milan and Rome.
His concept on tanks
Artillery and canons
Leonardo's machines, bridges, and hydraulics.
The world's most famous drawing - The Vitruvian Man
