Mona Lisa Multiverse

Da Vinci's Workshop is inspired by the Italian Renaissance of the middle fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, when an historic convergence of inspired artistry, technical innovation and enlightened patronage launched Europe out of medievalism and into modernity. Our story will focus on the republic of Florence, for it was here, in a city-state of about the same size and population as Black Rock City, that humanist ideals, a rediscovery of science, and funding from a newly moneyed class of entrepreneurs fueled a revolutionary cultural movement that redefined Western civilization. Five centuries later, we will attempt to recreate this potent social alchemy by combining Burning Man art, maker culture and creative philanthropy to make Black Rock City the epicenter of a new renaissance.

Gian Giacomo Capratti who sketched the first bicycle n 1494.. Was a pupil of Da Vinci.. Also possible he was D's lover and was the subject that posed for the Mona Lisa painting.. But then again,who give a crap sandwich. Smithsonian make the D out like Edison, grabbing other's ideas... There were flaws in most of Da Vinci's drawings and descriptions so other could not use them.. There were no patents issued in the 1490's..

I'm goving this a nudge to the Art Theme board, now that the 2016 boards are live I think that's a better fit.

After Da Vinci finished painting The Mona Lisa, God looked upon the painting and commented that half of it looked very vivid, and the other half quite dull. Leonardo explained that he was running out of paint, and had to use paint thinner to finish the work. At this, God became very upset, struck the painting down with a lightning bolt from above, and in a loud voice told the artist: “Leonardo, repaint, and thin no more!”

Glad to see there is a Man on the Playa :)

Hope no one noticed he seems to be upside down.
