Adoration of the Magi

Restoration to the adoration of the Magi by Leonardo da Vinci provides us with new insight to this famous renaissance painter work style. The painting of the Adoration of the Magi was in really bad conditions due to the build up of dirt over the centuries, and restoration was long due.

The careful restoration of the Adoration of the Magi is a painting that demonstrates the three kings meeting Jesus for the first time and bringing him gifts. The work was sponsored by Monks in Florence to be done by da Vinci, however, he never completed the work do to tempting work elsewhere. The painting has several objects that indicate many symbolic references to Florence, the Temple of Jerusalem, and to even da Vinci himself. The restoration revealed the details, the faces, and the scenery of the painting that was unseen for centuries.

Leonardo da Vinci was above all a scientist, and the Adoration of Magi demonstrates his scientific approach in understanding art, perspective, nature, and anatomy.
