    I would too.....but I'd be able to spend that much on rocks as well.

    As it is I'll have to settle for prints by Don Trojani......:Thumbsup:

    Here's a list of Leonard's works. The videos highlight an alien in his paintings.

    He is above the far left window at the back of the room......I also saw King Kong above the far right window in the back of the room. It also looks like Mickey Mouse might be on the left wall above the second to the last dark panel......though it could just be a :smiley face".

    At AU someone posted it saying that there were ETs on the right above the table....but I didn't see that.....so I know what you mean. Its all about perception and viewing conditions.....it explains why some "UFOs" are unidentified to some and identified to others.

    The painting sold for an astonishing $450.3 million at auction. It was purchased by an unidentified buyer.

    Now they think the painting could have been done by one of Leonardo da Vinci's studio assistants.

    Were the possibilities of forgery known at the time of the auction?

    Welcome to the forum. You would think they had knowledge of that beforehand.
