The central part of the body is made of maple wood, on which a reproduction of Leonardo's famous self-portrait is hand painted. The original was probably made by the artist in 1510-1515, in the last years of his life.

In 1505, Leonardo da Vinci started studying the structure of birds and their flight, to build flying machines; drawing projects and notes in his Codex on the Flight, which he failed to finish.
This Codex inspired D-Parmy for his fountain pen, reproducing the project of his Hinged Wing on each desk pedestal in fir wood, completely hand painted.
