Computer Scientists Say They’ve Solved the Mystery of the Orb in Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Salvator Mundi’

The accuracy of the depiction of crystal in the painting has haunted fans of the world's most-expensive painting.

“A hollow orb… does not cause such distortion,” notes the paper, published on arXiv. After studying how light would refract through different types of orbs, they estimated that the glass of the orb in Salvator Mundi was a fraction of an inch thick, accounting for its ethereal optical quality.

 

Leonardo was fascinated by the way that glass interacted with light, and kept notebooks recording diagrams about optics. It stands to reason that the Renaissance great would have understood how light interacted with glass orbs and have been fully capable of depicting one with total optical accuracy.

 

The new finding changes the way people look at the painting, from all sides. While some have argued that the oddity of the glass ball is evidence that the work is actually by a lesser painter, Leonardo scholar Martin Kemp has said that it was the orb itself that convinced him of the work’s authenticity. He believes that it was made from rock crystal, noting the artist’s careful depiction of subtle “inclusions” in the material, and possibly a double refraction as would occur within a calcite sphere.

This Is the World's First Diamond Within a Diamond

The so-called Russian nesting doll diamond is the first of its kind to ever be found.

World-first "Matryoshka diamond" found in Russia

The Matryoshka diamond, with its free-moving diamond within a diamond, is thought to be one of a kind

Humans have been mining diamonds for a long time, but a new stone hauled from the belly of the Earth could very well be a first. The diamond itself is hollow - and inside is another diamond, freely moving around.

Don't try to derail my questions with 'information'. Only the blind believe information or knowledge alone grants them answers. Thank you though. Many will see past these distractions soon enough.

 

Wouldn't you like to know what the painting actually depicts

The above describes how Einstein, Newton, Pythagoras and Benjamin Franklin all had ties to the occult.

 

Thank you for the resource. provided curious information.
