From submarines to the human fetus, this man has thought of it all. Leonardo da Vinci was certainly a mysterious man, too, for his notes were all in mirrored cursive--written with his left hand--and he never once did a self-portrait of himself, as most his contemporaries did. He was a mastermind, and never stopped questioning the workings of the world around him. His curiosities led him to dissect corpses in the dead of night and experiment with many different subjects, one of which was what he's most known for--painting. His paintings show extraordinary beauty and talent in technique and skill, and the ambiguous nature of his paintings have left us pondering forever.
