Leonardo da Vinci: Five Hundred Years Of Genius was the exhibit taking place at the Canada Science And Technology Museum over the summer, marking five centuries since the death of the scientist, artist, philosopher, and outright genius of the Renaissance. In the lobby was a scale model of one of his concepts, a vertical flying machine.
Nearby was a timeline of Leonardo's life and the events that took place over those decades, both personally and in the larger scale of the Renaissance era.
Then I made my way to the exhibit, which was a look at Leonardo from a scientific point of view. This included copies of his works- the originals are too valuable to be moved, or can't be moved- seen in different ways.
These are copies of some of his codices- his thoughts on various subjects that reside in various places in Europe. We carry on with this tomorrow.
