Created from Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings, this working model of a hydraulic saw is finely detailed, with beautiful lasercut wooden construction, and includes a high-quality reproduction of Leonardo’s original drawing on canvas.
Dating from his first years in Florence, this piece refers to the study of a type of automatic saw used during that period, and contributes to previously documented examples by enriching it rather than being an original invention.
The saw was actuated by hydraulic energy, which is transformed through a complex system of gears and mechanical elements to produce the vertical movement of the saw at the same time as the synchronised advancement of the cart on which the tree trunk to be cut is place.
