Rare da Vinci Statue Coming to the Las Vegas Strip

Rare da Vinci Statue Coming to the Las Vegas Strip

 

A rare piece of art from Leonardo da Vinci will go on display at the Venetian Tuesday.

It is a bronze statue and cast known as “Horse and Rider.” The original work was created by da Vinci more than 500 years ago out of beeswax. The master was apparently working on a new type of process for casting sculptures. The beeswax began to deteriorate in the late 1900s, so a mold and bronze cast of the statue was created.

The statue and cast will be on display at da Vinci – The Genius Exhibition in the Imagine Exhibitions Gallery in the main lobby of the Venetian. It features a Renaissance military man riding a stallion. It was supposed to be a model for a statue to honor a French governor but da Vinci died before completing the project.

The exhibition will be on display through October at the Las Vegas Strip property.
