Leonardo Da Vinci
Leonardo Da Vinci is extraordinary in his work on inventions. He is also a painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. Da Vinci was born April 15, 1452 in Tuscan. He father is Messer Piero Fruosino di Antonio da Vinci. Leonardo has some of the most famous paintings in the world: Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Vitruvian Man, and The Creation of Adam. Some of his inventions are Hang Glider, Parachute, Helicopter, and many more. Despite his work from everything else, he is a great inventor. The most inserting inventor has invented the diagram for the plane because he did not have all the equipment to build the planes during his lifetime.
One of the main reasons that he could not invent most of the inventions is because of the time. Resources played a major part in his time. It was 1452 and he did have the resources to build the type of designs he had drawn.
