Take a Word--Man
I chose Leonardo DaVinci for this week's challenge. Honestly, this image just popped into my head and try as I might, I couldn't shake it. The mind and imagination of this man just amazes me. His painting is sublime, his inventions were amazing for his time, his curiosity was insatiable and infinite.
I think he is the perfect embodiment of this quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet:
"What a piece of work is a man,
How noble in reason,
How infinite in faculties,
In form and moving how express and admirable,
In action how like an angel,
In apprehension how like a god! "
The images were Googled, and the background began as a texture piece by UR_2; all were much embellished with filters and brushes.
