Leonardo Da Vinci: Free Online Prints



Here is a remarkable site that offers free downloads of Leonardo Da Vinci drawings. Many of these drawings I have not seen before.

If you would like the picture set on your desktop right click the image after enlarging and choose: set as background.

To read about one of his most famous paintings the Last Supper, Wiki offers an in depth article.

Recently, I went to Natural Bridge Virginia and took a tour through the Wax Museum. The final stop was a presentation of the story of the last supper.

The story captured how Leonardo captured the apostles in different poses and the meaning of each pose. I highly recommend if you have a chance to visit the wax museum at Natural Bridge Virginia. Below is a photo I took during the presentation. It was fascinating to see the story come to life and the care and details they used in the presentation.

Great article, Bob and what a neat site you sent us to! I love your photo from Natural Bridge. Amazing how the wax figure to Jesus' right appears so feminine...just like in DaVinci's last supper....
