... resco makes areas of color appear quite distinct. Unfortunately, his experiment was unsuccessful; the paint did not adhere well to the wall, and within 50 years the scene was reduced to a confused series of spots. What we see today is largely a later reconstruction, but the design is reliable and remarkable. The scene seems at first to be one of tumultuous activity, in response to the dramatic stimulus of Christ's words One of you will betray me, which is a contrast to the traditional static row of figures. But the 12 disciples form four equal clusters around Christ, isolated as a fifth unit in the middle. Thus, Leonardo once again enriches the empirical observation of vital activity but ...

Leonardo DaVinci Geniuses come few and far between in history. Hippocrates came in the late BC period. Einstein came in the late 1800s-early 1900s. Leonardo came in between the two of them, but is not recognized as well as they are. He was a brilliant human being. He was a master in the fields of painting, designing, engineering, and science. Most people know him merely as an artist, and some know him as an inventor, but not too many people know him for what he really was. This is because his life and his accomplishments are not taught, as in depth as they should be. During the height of the renascence, a genius was born in 1452 in the small town of Vinci, near Florence. He would become a gr ...

... is taking aim, before throwing the stone at Goliath, who is at some distance from David at this moment of the fight, so his figure is not included in the statue. Davids body expresses the great physical strain he is under, and his face expresses his determination and concentration ("David"). At David's feet is a half-covered harp, which is not part of the biblical description of the fight. It is rather a symbolic representation of part of David's life. As a young boy, David was a harp player and a shepherd. When his people asked him to fight Goliath, he was forced to throw down his music for a short time and pick up the armor of a warrior. However, he also threw down the armor, according ...
