Apparently this website documents the building of Leonardo da Vinci’s Flying Machine. Unfortunately, this one is not destined for flight, but rather to be hung in the Weber Public Library in Ogden, Utah. [Thanks Andy!]

    We’ve got a similar work hanging in our main university building, I’ve uploaded a panoramic I took of it a while back.

      Thanks! I am not sure if the image is loading? I only see the top? Amazing none-the-less.

  2. Hugh says:

    Sorry, that shot only shows the top of it, I’ll snap a more complete (but perhaps less artistic) shot of it today.

      That is beautiful! Thanks for taking another picture, I really appreciate it.

      I wish I had room for something like that in my house!

      I updated the link in your previous comment. Thanks again.
