Last weekend, I went to the MAC to see a lovely and fascinating exhibit: “Leonardo da Vinci: Man, Inventor, Genius“. When the security guard wandered into another room (I wasn’t sure whether or not photography was allowed), I quickly took this photo of a replica of one of my favorite Leonardo paintings, Lady with an Ermine:

It’s gorgeous, with intriguing symbolism and an extremely interesting backstory.

And because I’ll use any possible excuse to post a clip from Doctor Who, here’s a great Leonardo-related bit from my favorite DW episode, City of Death:

While waiting, I attempted to take a photo of Madame and me, and it sort of worked. She was more interested in rubbing up against my back, though. The second photo makes me giggle:
