[...] His works expressed diversity in all senses, in terms of religion, social class and political class. Conclusion With regard to Identity and diversity, Da Vinci's work was mostly religious oriented and seemed to support so much the needs of the monks and the King and what the society would look like in the eyes of these two classes.
