As well as being an artist, Leonardo was a military engineer who drew many designs of weapons for the Dukes of his time
This bombard re-creates one of Leonardo’s iconic images of a canon and exploding cannonballs. His notes indicated that the hollow bombs would explode close to the ground and send small projectiles in every direction. Kind of gruesome actually, but life in the Renaissance Times had wars going on – along with the great art, so these things happen. This working kit allows you to aim and launch small projectiles 5 to 10 feet – cool!
