The Composition

This masterful work of Art is in the process of being created to celebrate the joy of learning and expansion of one’s mind. Leonardo da Vinci was one of the greatest embodiments of this that the world has ever known. When one is engrossed in the process of learning to increase one’s understanding of the world, one is in fact gaining access to a wealth of knowledge about oneself. This knowledge of self expands the ability to navigate the world in which one lives with greater richness, appreciation, and harmony. The avenues for learning are many, and quite varied, but all who look upon this sculpture may be inspired by a man who simply turned toward study of the natural world to unlock the secrets of the invisible world.
