Da Vinci Air-Screw

This creation recreates a playground model of Leonardo Da Vinci's "air-screw" located at the Château du Clos Lucé, his final home. I built it as a Christmas gift for my lovely girlfriend; she and I visited Clos Lucé this past summer on our trip to France, and shared one of our favorite days visiting the Da Vinci museum there.

The coats on the minifig versions of us (dressed in acurate attire from our day in Ambroise) are custom-cut LEGO® capes, and the surface of the air-screw is a piece of poster board.
