8.2 Reflections #19 and #20
B. Lamm

" The work of artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) has an unusual characteristic. His handwriting is a mirror image of normal handwriting."

Leonardo would ask me to work on writing the letter "A" in my reflection writing. He would probably also ask me to work on writing the sentence multiple times. All of my letters need to be improved when I write them in reflection. One letter that I also really need to work on is the letter "D." I am naturally right-handed so it was difficult for me to write left-handed. Writing left-handed probably comes natural to him because that is what he has been doing for a while. I write from left to right because I am right-handed. This might explain why he writes from right to left.


This butterfly is symmetrical because if you cut it in half, it would look the same on both sides. Since it is the same on each side, it is a reflection.

If you focus on the right side of the picture, you can see that the bridge is reflected in the water. It looks the exact same so therefore it is a symmetrical reflection.

If you drew a line down the middle of this picture, it would look the exact same on each side. The wings and the position of his body are the exact same on both sides.
