I believe many friends have heard of the Renaissance in the history of human civilization. It was a European ideological and cultural movement from the 14th century to the 16th century, which reflected the demands of the new bourgeoisie.
Renaissance first sprang up in Italian cities, and then extended to Western European countries. It reached its peak in the 16th century and brought a period of scientific and artistic revolution, which opened the prelude of modern European history. It is considered to be the boundary between medieval times and modern times. Renaissance is one of the three major ideological emancipation movements (Renaissance, religious reform and Enlightenment) in modern Western Europe.
In the Renaissance, there were three great figures: Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and Raphael. One of the most famous is Leonardo da Vinci, probably in many people’s cognition, Leonardo da Vinci is a famous painter. However, only relying on the identity of a famous painter is not enough to make him a great person with far-reaching influence.
In fact, Da Vinci has made many achievements, and the painter is only one of his greatest achievements. He is also a famous mathematician, anatomist and astronomer. He is knowledgeable and versatile. He has made remarkable achievements in painting, music, architecture, mathematics, geometry, anatomy, physiology, zoology, botany, astronomy, meteorology, geology, geography, physics, optics, mechanics, invention, civil engineering and other fields. All his scientific research achievements are preserved in his manuscripts, about 15000 pages. Einstein believed that if Da Vinci’s scientific research achievements were published at that time, science and technology could be advanced half a century.
Einstein, a great scientist, has achieved so much for Leonardo da Vinci. It is an extraordinary achievement that a person’s scientific research achievements can advance human science and technology for half a century. It is estimated that few scientists can achieve such high achievements. From this, we can see how great Da Vinci was. We don’t know why he didn’t publish his scientific research achievements at that time.
Today we are going to discuss Da Vinci’s great achievements in painting. Modern scholars call him “the most perfect representative of the Renaissance” and he is the only versatile person in human history. His greatest achievements are painting. His masterpieces such as Mona Lisa, the last supper and the virgin of the rocks reflect his superb artistic attainments. He believes that the most beautiful object of study in nature is the human body, which is a wonderful work of nature, and the painter should take human as the core of the painting object.
In painting, Da Vinci’s works seem to be beyond painting. In his works, you can see all kinds of “codes” about religion, astronomy and human body. For hundreds of years, many people have been happy to solve these codes.
Among Leonardo da Vinci’s paintings, Mona Lisa’s smile is probably the one with the most codes. People interpret many kinds of emotions in this mysterious smile, including 83% happiness, 9% disgust, 6% fear and 2% anger. We don’t know how the data came out, but it’s still interesting, isn’t it?
The magic of this painting is that no matter what angle you look at it, the Mona Lisa seems to be smiling at you. It’s a mystery. Why can a painting do this? Scientists are also exploring. Later, a foreign expert used high technology to scan the famous painting and found a secret. What’s the secret?
There was a second face in the painting. When the Mona Lisa was magnified 40 times, experts found another woman standing behind her. This discovery shocked the world, many people think of painting in picture, you know, painting in picture is a painter’s highest technical performance. But Leonardo da Vinci’s picture in picture is far better than other pictures in picture. If we didn’t enlarge it by more than 40 times, we would never find it.
So who is the woman standing behind the Mona Lisa? Through the analysis of this woman’s facial features, it is found that she is very similar to Da Vinci himself. Therefore, many people think that this may be Da Vinci’s mother. But no matter who she is, the coincidence of two women just explains why smile can be seen from every angle.
The discovery of the secret behind Mona Lisa’s smile once again makes us feel incredible about Leonardo da Vinci’s achievements in painting. We should know that painting in picture, which can’t be seen with naked eyes, is 3D technology in the view of modern technology. Even our current 3D technology can’t be so perfect and flawless.
But this kind of 3D technology has been used in painting by Da Vinci at that time. We can see how amazing it is. Many people may think that this is Leonardo da Vinci’s skill and wisdom in painting, but when we carefully analyze it, you will find that even if other painters’ painting skills reach the level of Leonardo da Vinci, it is estimated that it is difficult to create a perfect picture in picture like Mona Lisa’s smile.
Why? We have introduced the achievements of Leonardo da Vinci. He is not only a famous painter, but also a great scientist. The reason why posterity didn’t know that he was a great scientist is that his scientific achievements at that time were not published, so he was not known by the outside world.
If the scientific achievements of Leonardo da Vinci were announced at that time, people would not call him a great painter now, but a great scientist with epoch-making significance who can lead the future of mankind. You know, there are only a few such great scientists in modern times, such as Newton, Einstein and so on. And Einstein’s evaluation of Da Vinci is very high, which can be seen that Einstein put Da Vinci’s achievements in Science in the same position as him.
People naturally don’t know the real reason why Da Vinci didn’t publish his scientific research at that time. Some people think that it may be influenced by the environment at that time. In the era of Leonardo da Vinci, science was not recognized by people. On the contrary, it was resisted by religion, which brought great danger. Maybe Da Vinci didn’t want to get into trouble, so he didn’t publish his scientific research and kept them all.
There is also a bolder guess, that is, Da Vinci may be a time and space traverser. Some people once proposed a conjecture that space-time crossing may be real, and there may have been many human beings suspected of space-time crossing in the history of human civilization, and Leonardo da Vinci may be one of them. Of course, these are just some people’s conjectures. We may never know what the truth is, unless in the future human beings really develop a time machine and can go back to Da Vinci’s time to understand the truth.
It was Leonardo da Vinci’s extraordinary scientific achievements that led him to integrate some scientific things into his painting technology and create the great “smile of the Mona Lisa”. The painting in picture technology may be the real application of 3D technology. At that time, Leonardo da Vinci conducted relevant research and made some achievements, integrating these technologies into this painting In the middle. If someone had not magnified it more than 40 times later, the secret behind the Mona Lisa would not have been discovered.
