With researchers in Italy claiming to have found evidence of a lost masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci, why not celebrate by admiring these poetic and amusing da Vinci-esque creations?
Metal smith and jewelry maker Dukno Yoon conjures up the more scientific work of the master with his Wings series of works.
Yoon is clearly a machinery-minded gadgeteer. "Mechanical structure becomes the most enjoyable form to me, as it becomes complex yet remains simple and coherent," he says on his site.
Still, he considers these pieces "a series of poems" in which he shares "metaphor, imagination, and humor with the viewer/wearer."
We won't deny that the pieces give our mood a lift.
