Da Vinci – The Genius exhibition in Johannesburg now on till 27 July
Da Vinci – The Genius brings to life the genius of Leonardo as an inventor, artist, scientist, anatomist, engineer, architect, sculptor and all-round Renaissance thinker. The exhibition has been seen by over four million people around the world, including tens of thousands of South Africans.
The hundreds of exhibits on display include large touchscreen versions of Leonardo’s famous codices (notebooks), life-size machine inventions, anatomical sketches, and the only 360-degree exact replica of the elusive Mona Lisa painting ever made. Together they showcase the true depth of Leonardo’s abilities and appeal to people of all ages.
It has been recorded that Leonardo da Vinci would walk through market places, and buy birds to set them free from their cages. It has been said that he would stand in front of the cages and sketch, at a very rapid pace, the bird’s flight patterns.
Da Vinci – The Genius is currently on at The Amazing Place in Woodmead, Sandton, and has been extended until 27 July 2014. For more information and ticket sales, visit www.davinciexhibition.co.za.
