Da Vinci’s Fingerprints?


This undated photo released by the University of Chieti, Italy, on
Thursday, Nov. 30, 2006, shows fingerprints on a paper believed to be
handled by Renaissance master Leonardo Da Vinci. Anthropologists said
they have pieced together Leonardo da Vinci’s left index fingerprint
a discovery that could help shed light on such thing as the food the
artist ate and whether his mother was of Arabic origin. The three-year
research was based on a first core of professional quality photographs
of about 200 fingerprints  most of them partial taken from about 52
papers handled by Leonardo in his life. (AP Photo/Courtesy of Piero
