A long-lost work of Leonardo da Vinci has been found! Millions of people have believed for 500 years that the Shroud of Turin was the burial cloth of Jesus Christ, when in fact, it is a creation of the Master, Lionardo di Ser Piero da Vinci... Leonardo da Vinci. The Shroud is the proof of how meticulous, mysterious and unique Leonardo was in the creation of his work.
The author of Leonardo, the Man Behind the Shroud, is Rena F. La Caria. She carefully documents, from Leonardo's own notes, how he worked, what mattered to him, why he was so precise in everything he did. And through it all, she slowly pulls the plug on any remaining belief in the Shroud as a burial cloth. She proves beyond doubt that it is what she claims, and she does so by recreating it herself, using Leonardo's methods!
Leonardo, The Man Behind the Shroud is available for scholarly research and review at the Library of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. Leonardo, The Man Behind the Shroud is a reference book based on da Vinci's personal hand-written notes on how he manipulated drawings made from his studies of human cadavers in creating completely different works of art, all shown in this book, including the Mona Lisa, his self-portrait (Red Chalk Drawing) and a multitude of other paintings and drawings. The information in the book was researched and verified by the Smithsonian Institute in 2002.
Throughout his notes, he made references to God and believed that all of his knowledge and understanding came directly from God. Contrary to popular theory and conjecture, Leonardo da Vinci was NOT an Atheist.
There are approximately 946 images of Leonardo's drawings, paintings and sketches, and 200+ collections of Leonardo's notes used to calculate measurements and proportions for his works. These notes were used in Ms. LaCaria's recreation of the Shroud of Turin and his other works! To learn more about this fantastic book, click here to see the Press Release on this site.
Rena is producing Leonardo da Vinci's drawings as oil paintings to empower his works and give meaning and life to the paint brush. Only one original reproduction will be created from each of Leonardo’s drawings. These reproductions are for sale.
