Pictures, Take Two

Finally uploaded some of the pictures:

Another model of one of Da Vinci's inventions. A real version of this made a few years ago not only worked, but it flew better than the Wright brothers' plane.

A model of a horse's head, part of a 24-foot-high sculpture Da Vinci designed for one of his patrons. (You can see the outline of the entire sculpture in the background.) Da Vinci only got as far as casting a model of the horse's head, but it was later used for target practice and destroyed. :( This is obviously a modern replica. Doesn't Oscar look tiny here?

One of the poisonous frogs on display.

More to come later....
