Forte Belvedere, Italy - A large letter 'E' - plucked straight from Leonardo da Vinci's Annunciation painting - has popped up unexpectedly on Kim Kardashian's wedding pics posted on the internet today.
Etched in the brickwork of the 39in × 85in oil and tempera on panel painting the Master executed in 1475 the letter completely dominates da Vinci's portrayal of the Virgin Mary telling Archangel Gabriel the pregnancy testing kit results.
Now that E's doppelganger is all over the bottom left hand corner of photos of the newly married Kardashian-West couple snogging in front of a huge wall of flowers at an Italian palazzo .
"Its weird grey presence at least takes your mind off some other stuff," an LA celebwatch site commented today.
"Stuff like what an utterly horrible dress Kim was wearing, with its 'teething bib" frontage and granny's-curtains hem."
Cryptographer sources at the Florentine Renaissance Artists Association which first debated the meaning of da Vinci's huge letter E in the 1475 painting said this evening Italian weddings are often like that.
A magnum of 1945 Grappa to whoever solves the conundrum.
