In reading an MSN news article about Munch's "Scream" being recovered from art thieves, I read this:
"In Scotland in 2003, two men overpowered a tour guide and stole Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Madonna of the Yarnwinder,” worth an estimated $65 million. "

....I hope they catch the demons and punish them harshly!!! :!!!:

You know... to me it looks like a NiddyNoddy for winding spun yarn into hanks...

If it is a niddyknoddy, that would explain the name of the painting then. Maybe?
