Da Vinci The Genius: The Man Who Knows Everything

Only know him as an artist? Then better that consider again. Leonardo Da Vinci is not just an artist who’s famous for his Mona Lisa painting (otherwise known as La Joconde in French) but is also a scientist and inventor of things we have been using ’till today – planes, war materials, and other sorts of machinery. It is indeed him who discovered the optical theory explaining why we see things. The light emitted by an exterior object penetrates the eye, the image of which is interpreted by the brain (documentary show in the museum, see sketch below for visual explanation).

The following are the pictures of some Da Vinci’s innovations in the exhibition. These may seem like a replica, but they give a slight idea what Da Vinci’s innovations are like.
