DEDICATION ~ DA VINCI ~ DETAIL STUDY OF DRAGON COSTUME

Sacramento, United States

Artist's Description

Study of a dragon c1512-13
In this drawing, Leonardo creates an imaginary monster reminiscent of a Chinese dragon. The proportions and manner in which the body and head of the dragon are articulated in this drawing seems to suggest that this is a design for a costume to house two performers, in the manner of a pantomime horse.
The designing of costumes and props for festivities, masquerades and theatrical productions was an enduring interest of Leonardo’s, of which little evidence survives today.
