This drawing of the head of Christ does not appear to me to be by Leonardo. A few points: 1. It is drawn by a right handed person. 2. the chin bulges out to the left (on face). 3. the nose is anatomically too long and appears disconnected at forehead. 4. the eyes are of different sizes, and the left is higher. 5. the modeling of the forms of the face is vague and the lighting uncharacteristically flat.
