I wonder what it's like to ponder " well, it's just $15 million, and it would really add to the collection..."

I'm still frustrated a Red Bull costs $2.

Leonardo's been waiting a long time for a bear market.

Going to spent? So he is going to have had a Da Vinci and a time machine?

Thanks, Obama!

It's 7cm x 7cm according to the article. Does it come with a magnifying glass encrusted in Swarovski crystals? It looks cool but that's teeny tiny.

Would you buy it for $15 million if it was 7m x 7m?

No matter its size it's absolutely priceless

Oh I agree. I mean it's an incredibly proportioned drawing of a bear head, made even more incredible that it's hundreds of years old. By Leo himself even. It's just like when I saw Mount Rushmore in person: I saw it and said "that's it? It's so small". I guess I would've hoped it would be bigger if I was a gazillionaire that was going to purchase it. The internet/tv makes things look bigger than they are.

Look at this hung braggart, claiming that a little under 3 inches is tiny

I'm actually inverted.  It's going to auction end of summer, expected to fetch ¥75m for this inverted member.

He was supposed to draw Tippi the Turtle, but Verrocchio let him apprentice anyway.

Didn't they make a 3 hour movie about him getting molested by a bear recently?

Well, $14 million for their coke debt and $1 million for the painting....
