Leonardo da Vinci was an Italian painter, mathematician, scholar, anatomist, sculptor, engineer, inventor, scientist, architect, poet and writer. He kept a detailed notebook of his ideas and inventions, including a submarine, a flying machine, and other inventions far beyond his timona lme. He wrote in "mirror-writingL" meaning that you have to hold his writing up to a mirror to read it, but no one knows why. He was at times a military inventor for various men in power, and made things like the scorpion (the giant crossbow thing) and a triple barreled cannon. He also planned great scholarly works, but never started them. Of his artwork, only 15 pieces still survive, and most of them are unfinished. His most famous works are the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper. He also discovered blood circulation, and made many notes on the human heart. Because he made his discoveries using corpses, he wasn't real poular with the church, but back then, who was? (Galileo, anyone?)
I think he was a great artist andwas better then any one else
Leonardo Davinci stands for"Leonardo from the town of Vinci"
