Madonna of the Yarn Winder

Leonardo's da Vinci's stolen Madonna of the Yarn Winder has been recovered!

You've got to love a painting called Madonna with the Yarn Winder, and this is particularly good for regular visitors to Dumfries and Galloway.

See the report on the BBC.

I too thought this story was so cool but it was lost on the muggles I know!

I love the yarnwinder, but was wondering where the yarn was, since the baby Jesus needs a wee knitted item there! Love the picture, glad they found it.

From Lis:
This picture has always fascinated me. I heard it referred to mistakenly as 'Madonna with the Yardwinder'! Quite an appropriate picture for this time of year (Xmas).
