Caption: Pleasure and pain. Historical artwork of allegorical figures representing pleasure (left) and pain (right), by the Italian artist, engineer and scientist Leonardo da Vinci. Beneath the figures are the Italian words for gold and clay. They are drawn as twins because the emotions of pain and pleasure are never far apart, and back- to-back because they are contrary to each other.
