Noble friends,

Following on yesterday's post about hidden messages in Rembrandt's "The
Night Watch", BBC Culture has posted another story about secret meanings in
Da Vinci's two "Virgin of the Rocks" paintings.

That Da Vinci would post secret messages in his paintings is perhaps not
surprising since he sometimes wrote his journals backwards, possibly as a
precaution against being taken before the Inquisition. Here the artist
apparently included hidden meanings that are both doctrinal and heretic.

The story is found at

Yours Aye,

Mungo Napier, Laird of Mallard Lodge  🦆
