About the lion 2019 marks 500 years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci, best known as an artist, though equally as accomplished in the sciences, music, mathematics, engineering, anatomy, astronomy, and so on. He created at least two animatronic lions in the early 1500s, which moved, walked, and opened up to reveal lilies inside. The King of France was so impressed by Leonardo’s genius, he invited him to his court. Leonardo arrived by mule, bringing many paintings, including the Mona Lisa, which has remained in France ever since.
