I mean why would you have a painting of your enemie on your hideout wall? specially one that has been already been killed?

I have always wondered that trough these AC games. Also I like to think that they have been painted by Leonardo Da Vinci hehehe.

Anyways if you got paintings of your enemies then why not of some of your friends and loves ones that have passed away already?

For example Leonardo met Cristina Vespucci one right? I like to think that he painted a portrait of her, and that portrait could be kept on the Hideout? Maybe as a reward for completing all of Cristina Missions?

It's because Ezio is pretentious and arrogant... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

And no, Leonardo never met Cristina.

IMO, the paintings are prizes. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

Trophies. Same reason a game hunter has deer heads hanging on his walls.

Exactally. I think its the Renaisence version of big game hunting.

Yep, and hanging the actual heads would give off a terrible smell after a while

In ACII it was a little unnecessary because the painting were only visible in Ezios room in Monteriggioni, but still a nice touch.

I can understand it more in Brotherhood. The recruits will see them, and it will set an example rather than it being "Just another trophy on the wall".
