DaVinci Doodles Draw Lengthy Lines

Is it worth it? I wouldn’t know; every line I’ve braved so far has ended in failure once the venue reaches capacity long before I’ve even seen the front door. Hopefully the thousands of visitors that snake around the exterior block of the downtown Vancouver Art Gallery each day will find Leonardo’s Mechanics of Man exhibit worthwhile.

On loan from The Royal Collection in Windsor until May 2, the 1510 collection of anatomical drawings compiled by Leonardo, after assisting in a rarely-performed 16th Century human dissection, focuses on the muscular movements and structure of the body. I guess in the midst of all the twists and turns of athletes competing in everything from aerial skiing to figure skating, the anatomical drawings are relevant.

I’d be interested to see what your muscles looked like after spending 5 hours standing in line!
