Leonardo da Vinci

In the last post I, Sweet William The Scot, played a game of guessing who Lee was going to be for Halloween.
We gave you clues over the weekend.
The clues were
CRYPTOGRAPHY
thirty-three degrees ~ referring to the FREEMASONRY
died OVER 500 YEARS AGO in FRANCE
PYRAMID ~ referring to the glass pyramid at the Louvre.
MYSTERIOUS EXPRESSION ~ reference to the Mona Lisa which he painted.
This is believed to be his self portrait.
This self portait was painted in 1512 using red chalk, when Leonardo da Vinci was 50 and living in France.
We used this picture to create our mask from PAPER MACHE OVER A BALLOON about twenty layers then spraying it with a clear sealer.  Lee is wearing HIS STRANGE HAT AND DARK ROBE WITH PAINT ALL OVER IT AND CARRYING BRUSHES AND A PAINT PALETTE WITH A GREY HAIR WIG.
WE HAVE LOVED READING DAN BROWN'S international blockbusters The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, The Lost Symbol and now Inferno.
Inferno is out this week at the theater.
Lee's Halloween Party is at her Book Club and she has to dress as a character from a book they have read.
~~~~~~ DRUM ROLL ~~~~~
We have a winner and the winner is
MADI'S DAD
Yes Madi's Dad was playing along and figured out our clues.
Mr Jack Freckles tried really hard and kept guessing after every clue so we are sending him a magnet also.
All the guesses were fun to see.

Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of  mine
Signing Off 
Sweet William The Scot

Pssss ~ We will be back next week with another place in Nati City

    Hooraaah for B-cat... I missed the 'mysterious expression' bit and did think along the lines of Dan Brown, but just didn't make that final leap. Blame road fatigue. Oh, and that I just didn't get it!!! &*<> It was fun playing along. Hugs and Howlies, YAM-aunty xxx
