Portrait of a Man in Red Chalk

The portrait is drawn in red chalk on paper. It depicts the head of an elderly

man in three-quarter view. The man is distinguished by his long hair and long waving beard. The length of the hair and beard is uncommon in Renaissance

portraits. The face has detailed nose and is marked by deep lines on the brow and pouches below the eyes. The eyes of the figure do not engage the viewer

but gaze ahead, almost covered by the long eyebrows, with a sense of

wisdom.

A theory states that this is a self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci.

Ornithopter

Leonardo took a huge interest in flight, and by about 1505 had collected

around 20 years of theory on the idea of flight. It is around this time that some think Leonardo built a complex ornithopter, a machine with flapping wings that related to the anatomy of birds.
