Head Measured, and Horsemen.

Name: Head Measured, and Horsemen.
Artist: Leonardo da Vinci
Location: Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice
Year: 1490

For many hundreds of years the notebooks lay hidden from the world, forgotten. This was written strangely backward, from right to left, in outmoded Tuscan dialect, often in small-abbreviated script, unknown except to a fortunate few.

The pages offer notes and illustrations of mechanical inventions, designs for military machinery, architectural devices, flying machines, maps and sketches as well as botanical studies.
