Painted from 1489 to 1490, Lady with an Ermine depicts a woman holding an ermine- a stoat in its winter coat. Despite the title, it would appear that this "stoat" is actually a ferret.
This painting's name in the Animal Crossing series was possibly given due to the girl's peaceful, benign expression.
Stolen from Poland in 1939 by the Nazis, it was later recovered by the Allied forces after World War II and was returned to the Czartoryski Museum in Kraków.
