If you are an art lover by any chance, you’d know how difficult it is to analyze a painting. It is almost next to impossible to decipher the perspective of the artist while he/she was commencing their masterpiece.

Lady Without an Ermine
Historians say that in the original version of the famous painting Lady With an Ermine, there was no ermine. It is a little hard to believe but Leonardo da Vinci drew the gray animal and the blue cloak later. For the final version, he even made the animal larger and colored it white. Yes, this is the popular belief by masses.
