Playing with Leonardo
The Divine Proportion

With his ‘glorious’ and ‘ineffable left hand’, Leonardo made, not only the five regular polyhedrons visible and comprehensible to everyone, after centuries of silence, but also many other solids deriving from them or connected to them. From that moment on Leonardo confirmed the triumph of those solids and of the ‘Divine Proportion’ which those figures needed to be drawn.
