his gifts eternal

"Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art."

In His Hand

In his hand 
A pencil he to hold
Lines, shadows, delicate 
Purposeful and bold
Portrays he grace
A beauty sublime
And gifted we be
By artistry divine.

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci, April 15, 1452 ~ May 2, 1519, an Italian polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist and writer. Leonardo is known as the archetype of the Renaissance man, a man whose curiosity was equaled only by his powers of invention. Indeed one of the greatest artists of all time and perhaps the most diversely gifted person ever to have lived.
