Genius Leonardo Da Vinci on the crossroad of civilizations

context da vinci genius Leonardo

My 3-dimenional artwork is inspired by an artwork of Leonardo da Vinci named 'La belle Ferroniere' . I worked as an guide at the traveling 'Da Vinci, the Genius' exposition. So I read loads of books to know his life and work in great detail in order to guide the visitors properly. Yes, Leonardo was a very intelligent (and good-looking!) man, but he was also inspired by islamic culture and writings, by nature, by the people and cultures around him. Interaction with other people and different perspectives enriched him too. So he is a genius by context...as we all are.
