First time post here. I've been all over the internet looking for some reason why The Adoration of the Magi by Leonardo Di Vinci is green when you view it with Eagle Vision. I can't find a single answer, only one person mentioning it in another forum who did not get a response. Does anybody know why this is? It is driving me mad. Knowing the developers behind this game they don't do anything without reason it seems everything in this game has a purpose or greater meaning, and thats what I love about it! But I cannot figure this one out, please help!

It's green? Intriguing. Brb.

EDIT: Mystery solved. Eagle vision puts a strong blue shade over everything. The painting is painted almost entirely in shades of yellow. Blue + yellow = green. You can see shades of green in the other paintings as well, they're just not as strong or dominant as they are in the Adoration of the Magi.
