Leonardo Da Vinci is really famous for his painting of Mona Lisa. This painting has no real signifigance; it is just a portrait of a woman.
Leonardo Da Vinci also created an idea of the parachute. This was incredible back in the day, but obviously not now. The top of the parachute is a pyramid shape in a way, while the modern one is round.
This is a Storyboard version of Leonardo Da Vinci's painting, "The Last Supper". This was his last supper with his disciples before he died.
Leonardo Da Vinci was actually really, really smart for his era, but many people didn't support his science and he didn't speak Latin, so it was hard to show his ideas. He also hid his work from society; this is a picture of him creating a basic verision of the Scientific Method.
Leonardo made the sketches and ideas of a flying machine. Although the first flying machine wasn't made by him, he concieved the idea first.
In all, Leonardo Da Vinci was really ahead in his time period. He didn't really have a form of education and he spoke Italian, which made it hard to communicate to others since during the Renaissance, the main language was Latin. He is so smart that his knowledge is still used now.
