Look Mona Lisa in the eyes and you might wonder: why is this painting worth more than 830 million dollars? Well, virtuosity from the soul straight through the paint brush on poplar wood that is likely to come from Lombardy Tuscany. Leonardo da Vinci could not only paint better than his teachers, but took an interest in drawing, invention, architecture, sculpture, music, mathematics, anatomy, literature, engineering, geology, astronomy, botany, paleontology and cartography, this is what historians call a ‘Universal Genius’. And believe it or not, but he never enjoyed any formal academic education, his philosophical and scientific knowledge was self taught, all he received in his early years was an informal education in Latin, geometry and mathematics, and at the age of 17 became an apprentice in Verrocchio’s workshop and was taught both the practical skill and the theoretical knowledge to paint, sculpture and engineer. Then later on in his life he ventured to create several of the most envied paintings, sculptures and architectural designs that are now displayed all over the world, and made significant contributions to philosophical inquiry and mathematics, it was nothing short of remarkable what he had accomplished, yet on his deathbed he said that "he had offended against God and men by failing to practice his art as he should have done”, something quite unusual to say, something that just like the 830 million dollar value of ‘the Mona Lisa’ makes you wonder, but what else than a profoundly heartfelt humbleness could have given utterance to such words? Whenever you feel haughty, just remember Leonardo da Vinci his attitude on his deathbed and you will understand the wisdom of walking life humbly and referent.
