Michelangelo’s scribble on a Post-it-like, small paper square

This scrap of writing/drawing by Michelangelo was expected to sell for between $6,000 and $8,000. It sold for $201,600.

The small work depicts a block of marble, with the word “simile,” or “similar” in English. It is believed to have been drawn while Michelangelo worked on his famed Sistine Chapel ceiling, a Christie’s specialist told AFP in January.

It makes me want to make sticky notes with that exact drawing/writing.
