Call me Leonardo

 

Though Leonardo da Vinci is my hero of all times, I wasn´t much inspired to make a card for this week´s Sunday Postcard Art challenge, but then I thought he should have an opportunity to tell people that his name is not da Vinci but Leonardo - just that. Or Leonardo da Vinci which means Leonardo from Vinci. Vinci is a little village in the hills of Tuscany, and this is where he was born (believe me, I´ve been there), but last names hadn´t been invented at that time, and to make it easier, people were called after their birth places if these were known. As Gottfrid von Straßburg is just Gottfrid and Walther von der Vogelweide is just Walther, Leonardo is just Leonardo, and isn´t that enough for a genius?
