Transcript of Da Vinci

Done by: Joel & Kai Lam :) Leonardo Da Vinci Birth and childhood :) Leonardo Da Vinci was born on April 15th, 1452. He has no last name, but the place where he was born is called Vinci, hence his name Leonardo Da Vinci.

Interesting Fact: His father married a 16 year old girl named Albiera, who loved Leonardo but she died at a very young age. His father married 3 more times and then they produced a legit heir. Seems legit. When Leonardo was 14, he was apprenticed to a famous artist named Andrea di Cione, also known as Verrocchio. When he was 20, he qualified as a master in the Guild of St. Luke, which was the guild for artists and doctors of medicine. His youth is very hard to find. Youth! :D His first work was the Baptism of Christ, and many of his first paintings were related to the Bible, like Virgin Mary and the Virgin on the Rocks When his painting was shown to the world, many other people came to him to ask him to paint the paintings they wanted, and two of three of them are completed, while the other one was nearly not finished because of talks about cash and other problems. His most famous painting is The Last Supper, which shows the last dinner Jesus had with his disciples. One of his other famous paintings is the Mona Lisa. He is also famous for researching and other inventions. He researched the human body, the baby inside the mother’s womb, and made some other complicated drawings about math. Accomplishments! Leonardo Da Vinci did not adhere to any religion. He also wrote a book dissing Christianity, and telling people how Jesus wasn't God and how we weren't saved. It is really messy and confusing, because he might have believed in Deism, and then went to Catholic, then Christianity, and then back to Deism, and maybe it repeated. He only believed what could be tested and proven. He was on and off about Christianity and he protested indulgence. His paintings shows a lot of different beliefs that he had. In the Last Supper, it is speculated that the painting was used for hiding secret messages in it, while it is found that its mirrored image shows a lot of different things, not just Jesus at His Last Supper. Mona Lisa too, it hides a kitty cat and a snake and a tiger and an eagle and etc etc. Flip over for more! He believed that God was creator, but he did not believe that Jesus came down to save them all, as he thought that Judas was too bad and Jesus did not want to save him. Christian Influence :D Wikipedia.com/wiki/leonardo_da_vinci

Leonardo Da Vinci believed in many different and weird things. One of them was Him believing that his painting of the “Last Supper” had a deeper meaning beyond God. The Mona Lisa was a portrait of his wife named Francesco Del Giocondo. Joel says you can see hidden pictures in the Mona Lisa. Like a tiger, snake, and a kitty cat. Leonardo is really creepy as he could put random things in his paintings. He was a Catholic in a Catholic stronghold. He believed in Christianity, but he didn’t believe that Jesus was the Messiah.
Leonardo da Vinci is a really smart person, but his paintings show a lot of different things about his beliefs and his life. While he is an exceptional person, I think that he is a little wrong in his head and that he might have been just a little crazy. A little. His smartness is something that I believe that many people should learn, but not his rock-jumping style of religion, as God does not like that.
