Quotes: Leonardo da Vinci

Da Vinci quote illustrated by Karen Thiessen
Rooster Comb 2 pattern © Karen Thiessen, 2013
Inspiration often comes from ordinary places – this pattern is derived from the outline of a rooster's comb that I photographed years ago while on vacation in Bali. Casanova was the resident King of Cock-a-doodle-doo at our Penestanan guest house and each evening staff asked female guests to put him in his hand-woven cage for the night. Apparently this particular rooster responded best to women. I quickly learned that although they are handsome, roosters aren't exactly cuddly.
