Leonardo was born on April 15, 1452, “at the third hour of the night” in the Tuscan hill town of Vinci, in the lower valley of the Arno River in the territory of Florence. He was the illegitimate son of Messer Piero Fruosino di Antonio da Vinci, a Florentine notary, and Caterina, a peasant who may have been a slave from the Middle East. Leonardo had no surname in the modern sense, “da Vinci” simply meaning “of Vinci”: his full birth name was “Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci”, meaning “Leonardo, son of (Mes)ser Piero from Vinci.”
Little is known about Leonardo’s early life. He spent his first five years in the hamlet of Anchiano, then lived in the household of his father, grandparents and uncle, Francesco, in the small town of Vinci. His father had married a sixteen-year-old girl named Albiera, who loved Leonardo but died young. In later life, Leonardo only recorded two childhood incidents. One, which he regarded as an omen, was when a kite dropped from the sky and hovered over his cradle, its tail feathers brushing his face. The second occurred while exploring in the mountains. He discovered a cave and was both terrified that some great monster might lurk there, and driven by curiosity to find out what was inside.
Leonardo’s early life has been the subject of historical conjecture. Vasari, the 16th century biographer of Renaissance painters tells of how a local peasant requested that Ser Piero ask his talented son to paint a picture on a round plaque. Leonardo responded with a painting of snakes spitting fire which was so terrifying that Ser Piero sold it to a Florentine art dealer, who sold it to the Duke of Milan. Meanwhile, having made a profit, Ser Piero bought a plaque decorated with a heart pierced by an arrow, which he gave to the peasant.
Leonardo’s most notable work consists actually writes and sketches found in his diary, things have remained unpublished long after his death. In such a Notebook fully reflected Leonardo’s productive, investigative and adventurous mind and eye. The pages are filled with a surprising amount of thoughts, observations, drawings and experiments. Includes studies of water movement and reflections on the nature of the universe, as well as knowledge of fossils and principles of flying. They include a record of one of the greatest offenses, the systematic investigation of the human anatomy. Leonardo da Vinci gained around 30 dead human bodies for the evisceration of making out extremely clean, accurate sketches accompanied by Designer Notes.
Assuming we haven’t already met aliens and that we are still looking for our cosmic neighbors, our first encounter with aliens could be really scary. So, if you imagined aliens as small humanoid beings, with a massive elongated head, almond shaped-eyes, who have a weird obsession of ‘sticking probes’ up people’s bums, then you are […]
Phil Schneider believed that there are seven benevolent alien species currently living on Earth and four evil species. The theory further suggests that the US Government has signed four treaties with the Aliens in 1944, 1954, 1962 and 1979. The treaty in 1954 was signed between the Government and species of Grey Aliens. The Alien […]
