The Mona Lisa (La Gioconda)

Because of the crowds I took the pictures from an angle and not from the front. I tried to get in front of the painting but after 10 min in that warm room I gave up. No wonder Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world." (Wikipedia)


I heard on the news tonight that archeologists in Florence, have found a tomb that they say might hold the remains of Lisa Gherardini, the subject of Leonardo Da Vinci's iconic 'Mona Lisa.
