“There was born to me, a grandson, the son of Ser Piero my son, on the 15th day of April, a Saturday, at the third hour of the night. He bears the name Lionardo.” – Antonio da Vinci
The face of ‘the Vitruvian Man’ is said to be a self-portrait of Leonardo, age thirty-eight
But the earliest image we have of him, is age 14 in this bronze sculpture of ‘David’. Leonardo posed for his teacher, Andrea Verrocchio, when he was the master’s fourteen-year-old apprentice
But my favorite likeness is Leonardo’s unfinished self-portrait in the ‘Adoration of the Magi’ when he was twenty-nine
Could Leonardo’s self-portrait be proof that Tom Cruise was a teenage time traveler?
Anything can happen in the movies.
