Savinelli: Leonardo 500th Anniversary (12) (6mm) (311/500)
Product Number: 002-033-43223
In 2007 Savinelli embarked on an annual series dedicated to the work and life of Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci. The series produced nine unique shapes through 2015, each one inspired by one of da Vinci's notable contributions to the arts and sciences. May 2019 marks the 500th anniversary of Leonardo's passing, and Savinelli pays a special tribute to the renowned Renaissance Man with the Leonardo 500th Anniversary series — an exclusive line consisting of all previous nine shapes; united by a crisp, chocolate-stained rustication and pewter accent depicting da Vinci himself; and released in a limited production of only 500 total pipes.
A robust, plump-based bent Brandy, this piece from the 2012 series is perhaps the most traditionally shaped of the nine, yet it originally celebrated one of da Vinci's most unique and ambitious ventures: the "Ala Battente," also known as an ornithopter. The original release celebrated Leonardo's ingenius mind and the various models he made in his attempts to create a flying machine replete with bat-like wings.-Truett Smith
