Lady with an Ermine / Lady with a Siamese Cat Sketch

Lady with a Siamese Cat is the photo recreation of Lady with an Ermine, a work by Leonardo da Vinci around 1490. According to Krystyna Moczulska, there is a relationship between the ermine and the lady, which ermine protects the pregnant woman in classical literature. As a recreation of the artwork, the Siamese cat in the photo represents that the cat protects the lady mentally under the current pandemic and specific pressure, as a healing living thing. The lady and the cat face the same direction in a perfect portrait posture, and the cat comfortably relies on the lady’s embrace, showing the trust between the two.
