Leonardo da Vinci’s (15th April, 1452 – 2nd May, 1519) outstanding work of Mona Lisa, The Adoration of the Magi, Madonna of the Rocks or The Last Supper are familiar to everybody. But his journal entries are equally intriguing and are testimony to the fact that how deeply he studied anatomy, inanimate and animate forms and movements. It is due to such in–depth research that the masterpieces on canvas became a reality and do not fail in amazing people to this day. As the master himself advised, ‘Principles for the Development of a Complete Mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses – especially learn how to see. Realise that everything connects to everything else.’
