A very informative and science filled afternoon that we have last July 26 at SM NIDO Science Museum 2nd Flr. SM MOA. The motif is great and brings the people who will see the museum to ancient time and its discoveries.
Leonardo the Vincci is one of the most prolific inventors in history. His scientific and mathematical approach to art produced amazing three-dimensional artworks that later became basis for modern science. Because of his boundless curiosity, uncanny powers of observation and innovative thinking, he conceptualized machines that were considered advanced during his time.
A veritable polymath, the expertise and interest of this Italian Renaissance genius spanned a wide errange of subject areas. Apart from painting, he was well-versed in the fields of music, architecture, engineering, math, anatomy, cartography, botany and geology. He was likewise an adroit writer, sculptor and inventor.
Leonardo Da Vincci was popularized by Dan Brown in his Best selling novel Da Vincci featuring his famous artworks like Mona Lisa , The Last Supper and the Madonna on the Rocks. Bur he is actually much more than the artistic genius behind the prominent paintings in the Louvre Museum, shared Arturo Carballo Jr., Senior operations Manager for SM Family Entertainment Center.
“Da Vinci is a prodigy. He was multi-faceted person. He was extremely skilled and talented in both sciences and arts”
Indeed, Da Vinci’s amazing mind was considered as the epitome of Renaissance ideals. ‘A man of numerous talents, a veritable virtuoso.
