  1. 1. Details About Monalisa<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. Who's Mona Lisa? I am sure everybody knows who she was and who the painter was - of course, Leonardo da Vinci. The work of art illustrates a mystical woman staring at the viewer. It's also said that when you move across the room while looking into her eyes, those will follow you. Now, that is the real enigma.<br />
  4. 4. Here are some interesting information about Mona Lisa that you could just read for the first time:Who is the lady and is Mona Lisa her true name? There are still arguments of her real identity. Some says it is Da Vinci in a female form. Some claims it can be his lover and the smile is supposed for him.<br />
  5. 5. But probably the most commonly belief is that she is Lisa Gherardini, born in 1479, mother of two children. The motive why she was painted by Da Vinci is actually still unknown.<br />
  6. 6. There are various versions on the explanations why Mona Lisa doesn't have eyebrows. It was asserted that it was inadvertently eliminated by the curator when they had been repairing the artwork. And there had been also debates that given that Da Vinci has a obsessive-compulsive disorder he was not able to finish off the portrait. Well, i imagine nobody will ever know the true explanation.<br />
  7. 7. Mona Lisa isn't the true name of the art work. It was Monna Lisa, an italian name for Madonna, meaning "My Lady". Can you think it? One of essentially the most well-known oil painting's name can be a misspelling?<br />
  8. 8. The original painting has a minor spot of damage near her left elbow. In 1956, for not known purpose, a man named UgoUngaza threw a stone at the painting and therefore creating the small damage.<br />
  9. 9. Mona Lisa artwork started to be so common because partially it created news when it was stolen from Louvre Museum in Paris by an employee in 1911 - in broad daylight. However it was recovered after about two years.<br />
  10. 10. The painting is now back in Louvre Museum. It is inside a bullet proof glass which was built exclusively for the portrait and is in a room that's climate controlled environment. Due to the fact it really is considered costly, it can not be insured todate.<br />
  11. 11. Nowadays, there are lots of reproductions being done - and it is possible to discover many on-line. And as i've seen, many has been very much alike the original. Why not, if you cannot have the original, you can still get the second best, isn't it?<br />
