Leonardo, are we really supposed to believe this is an ermine? You are an Italian Renaissance Master and possibly the greatest artist that ever lived and this is the best you can do. That is not an ermine! Ermines are cuddly, furry and cute and you make fur coats out of them. This hairless reptilian beast might make a good wallet or pair of shoes, but not a fur stole.  It’s hard to believe in over 500 years of study, I am the first art historian to notice that this lady is clearly holding an alien pet in her arms. Nanu-nanu.
