In this paper, the writer discusses that art is a reflection of nature through the many accepted methods and mediums of art found in the still life, the landscape, and the portrait. However, the writer maintains that art does not always directly imitate how external nature appears to the human eye, but can be found through the internal invention apparatus within the human imagination. The writer discusses that "Helical Aerial Screw" by Leonardo Da Vinci is one example of the innovative imagination to change art from being a mere copy of reality into art mediums that explore the aesthetics and beauty of natural phenomenon within the human condition.
