The Heart of Leonardo

By Francis C. Wells

This publication includes all of Leonardo Da Vinci's drawings at the middle and its body structure, observed through re-translations of the entire linked notes. All Leonardo's drawings were interpreted within the mild of contemporary wisdom by means of a training cardiac clinician and anatomist. The veracity of his paintings is confirmed opposed to modern dissections of cardiac constitution and comparability of his illustrations with modern pictures generated by way of Magnetic Resonance scanners and excessive definition ultrasound will astound the reader. maybe the main attention-grabbing aspect is the re-dissection of the Ox middle set opposed to Leonardo’s personal drawings. His position within the higher scheme of anatomical improvement may be positioned into context together with his principles of man’s position within the microcosm/macrocosm continuum.
