A genius for all times

The intellectual legacy of Leonardo da Vinci's genius and all-encompassing. Hard to believe that this man lived in the epoch of the Spanish Inquisition and the mass of ignorance, when the disease treated plots, and socio-economic instability blamed witches. Endowing humanity ahead of time works, da Vinci realized that the information needs to be metered. Therefore, all his works, he did hardly accessible for reading, using his famous mirror writing technique.
To have survived not all the wizard. He was so ahead of its time that some of the original researchers who consider him a messenger of other worlds. Indeed, if you look at the ornithopter, Vitruvian man or the Mona Lisa is famous, a sneaking suspicion - and if not visited Leonardo in another dimension? Where such a perfect technique and fantastic realism?!
A simple son of a peasant woman and a notary combines, perhaps, all is possible at the time, the talents. His inventions cover all areas of knowledge. Scientist, artist, musician, da Vinci was a fine horseman and cook. Adhering to the idea of vegetarianism, da Vinci did not use meat, and carnivorous compatriots called 'walking cemeteries'. However, this circumstance did not prevent him to succeed in anatomy - Leonardo received permission from the Holy Church to the dissection of corpses. Because of this, he knew how the human body. So well that even in our enlightened days based on the detailed drawings of da Vinci, a British surgeon F. wells created an improved prosthetic mitral valve.
Da Vinci for the first time gave humanity the idea of the 'mechanical man', which today has become obtained citizenship Android Sofia. Leonardo da Vinci was well aware not only of human engineering. His drawings were created by the current aircraft - the balloon, the prototype of the modern scuba equipment, bicycles and even a prototype tank. And the French Royal court, thanks to the Leonardo project, already at that time could use the toilet with the flusher.
But the most favorite philatelic topic relating to da Vinci, are his artistic skills. His gift to portray the human face in the paintings of Leonardo da Vinci embodied in many paintings. The most famous are his images of women, the crown of which was a mysterious and unsurpassed Mona Lisa.
In trying to interpret the enchanting magic of the image, the researchers proposed a number of versions. X-ray examination of Philip Walter showed that, by taking sfumato, da Vinci managed to leave on the surface of the picture not a single smear or fingerprint. There is a secret, as Grand Master of visualized their stories. Leonardo envelop with smoke the room in which he wrote. The mist created the most mysterious illusion of 'blur' that we have the pleasure of seeing in his paintings.
In philately from different countries produced a lot of brands relating to the fine art of Leonardo da Vinci. West African Slovenia to 2019 released a series of 2 blocks (4 and 1 Marc), dedicated to the 500th anniversary since the death of genius. Italy, Russia, France, Cuba - philatelic geography covers the whole world.
