レオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチ展に行って来ました

去る10月10日の体育の日に、六本木ヒルズの森アーツセンター
ギャラリーで開催されているレオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチ展
娘と2人で行ってきました。

東京に住んでいながら六本木ヒルズに行くのは初めて。
地下鉄六本木の駅から地下道を通って六本木ヒルズに
到着しましたが、目指す森アーツセンターの入口が見つからず
しばらくうろうろしてしまいました。
ようやく入口を発見し、入場券売り場で入場券を購入し、
52階の会場までエレベーターで登ります。

今回の展覧会の目玉は「レスター手稿」と呼ばれるレオナルドが
鏡文字で書き込んだ自筆のメモです。
そこには天文学、水力学、土木工学等について彼が思考した事項を
書き込んだものです。このメモは現在、マイクロソフトのビル・ゲイツ
会長が所有し、年に1回だけ公開されている貴重なものです。

展示されている部屋は光による退色を防ぐため、真っ暗になっており
ほの暗い明かりが一分間隔で点滅し、その薄暗い中にA3サイズの
紙18枚を2つ折にした計72ページのノートが展示されています。
紙は当時の最新テクノロジーの産物だったとのことですが、その紙に
数ミリほどの細かい文字でぎっしりと書き込まれている文字を見て
いると、知の巨人と言われたレオナルドその人の息吹が伝わって
来るように思われます。

レオナルドはこの「レスター手稿」以外にも多くの手稿を残しており
有名な「解剖手稿」を始めとして、8000ページ以上にも及ぶとの
ことで、今回の展示会にもレプリカ版が展示されていましたが、その
量たるや膨大なものがあります。

レオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチは画家として有名で、その当時も多額の
画料を取っていたとのことですが、そのお金を投資信託して運用し、
そのお金で飛行機の研究や死体解剖などの研究をしていたと
以前読んだ五木寛之と塩野七生の対談「おとな2人の午後」に
出ていましたが、この膨大な手稿を見ているとまさにこれが
レオナルドの真骨頂だったのだと思われました。
そして知の巨人の思考の跡がこのように残されていることは
人類にとって貴重な物であると思われました。

まだご覧になっていらっしゃらない方には、是非ご覧いただくことを
お薦めいたします。

Did someone use GenF20 HGH. Human Growth Harmon Releaser?
Thay claim a lot of benefits including reducing stomache fat, sound sleep and over all good health and stemina, including sexual potency.
In fact they claim that it reduce your age 10 yrs or more, after taking a course of 6 month.
Its going to be more than a month since I am taking this medcine
but it dont seems to work anything they claim.
Or may be it work on certain paople and not to all?
