Leonardo Da Vinci was born on the 15th April 1452 in Venice Italy. He died on the 2nd May 1519 of natural causes. During his life he was established as a ‘great’ artist, inventor and scientist. He was very secretive when it came to his inventions. He wrote backwards so people could not understand what his inventions were . You would think, if he was such a ‘great man’ why would he hide his ‘great’ inventions. He is well known for his infamous and priceless painting “The Monalisa .” When he thought of an invention e.g thelight hang glider he took an extremely long time to prepare and to make sure it was absolutely perfect but were all of his inventions perfect? Introduction

Leonardo da vinci was probably best known for his painting. His most famous piece was probably the Mona Lisa. It is the most expensive painting in the world as it is considered priceless. Most people would know about it because it is one of the most famous paintings in history. He has painted many other famous paintings. For example The Last Supper. Some people see him as a god but really he was just talented . Why was the mona lisa so special though ? Some say, it's said that there is a hidden meaning behind it. Some say da vinci painted it in reflection of himself, that it looks like she has a secret because of the sly look on her face, therefore the secret is that it may be him. A sort of secret self portrait. Da vinci the Artist

Leonardo Da Vinci was a man who was fascinated by flight so he sketched his flying inventions of a helicopter and a glider. Leonardo Da Vinci’s helicopter sketch was the first of its kind. He called this invention the Arial-Screw. Da Vinci’s glider sketch was the first flying machine of its kind and is similar to gliders today. The frame was made out of bamboo shoots and the wing made out of resin cotton. So maybe he is as great as he seems. Leonardo Da Vinci’s machine gun and military tank inventions were designed with soldiers in mind. Leonardo Da Vinci’s machine-gun design consisted of three-tiers that contained 11 barrels in each of the three tiers into which the projectiles are loaded. The second tier is loaded while firing the first tier allowing the third tier to cool down before being loaded and fired again. Da Vinci’s military tank had a dome-shaped top similar to the shell of a turtle, which was designed to deflect enemy projectiles. The tank moved by turning gear cranks located inside, which turned the wheels. So far I think he is great. Da Vinci the inventor

Leonardo was also a renowned scientist mainly because he found out lots of important things about the human anatomy. He wasn't really respected as a scientist because he dug up bodies in the church to discover things about the human body. The church, obviously, dissaproved , but in the end it was worth it because we wouldn't have the knowledge of the human body that is pretty much essential today . He specialised in the development of muscles and the bones but also sketched diagrams of other things such as the heart. In all honesty, he seems like a great man but he did not help anyone by writing the notes backward so nobody could use it! A bit of a waste! Da Vinci the scientist

PowerPoint Presentation:

I do not think Leondardo was over rated overall. But, his painting, “the M ona L isa” is over rated and certainly not priceless . I do not think he was useful for science either even though most things were true as no one could use it as it was written backwards. But, his inventions I thought were very good. It helped to make all the flying devices we have now work. Plus, he was intelligent as no one had previously thought of them. Final conclusion
