Mona Lisa's eyes reveal code


Posted on Monday, 13 December, 2010 | Comment icon 49 comments | News tip by: Still Waters

Art detectives have discovered tiny letters and numbers placed in the eyes of the Mona Lisa.

Like something out of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code the tiny letters have been identified for the first time under magnification, in the right eye the letters spell out Da Vinci's own initials LV suggesting that he placed them there deliberately.

"Intrigue is usually focused on her enigmatic smile."

better be careful about x-raying the Mona Lisa, it'd be terrible to discover the words "this is a fake" written in felt tip underneath signed the doctor.

Jesus was just an ordinary peson who said a number of good things. Cool. Then history and politics distorted the truth. So to me, even if Da Vinci did bother to squiggle his initials in the eye of one of his paintings...so? And so what if the ancestors of J.C are still floating around, they'd just be ordinary people too.

I heard the Mona Lisa was supposedly a man? Supposedly a self portrait of DA Vinci himself.

The Mona has the Ponte Buriano (bridge), too. He lived next to Buriano in Tuscany, and his oldest known sketch is an Arno River Tuscany scene. Buriano hails from the Netherlands as "Lombards" and dates to about 800 AD in Tuscany. Lombards are associated with the Rhine River, and Burgundy, Thus Da Vince could himself be Anglo-Saxon, not Itallian, but I'm not certain. Not oly would he be a Twmplar, but also the Order of the Golden Fleece in this region too. I don't know thos answer either. I worked on the Shroud of Turin images (microdensitometer) with Sam Pellicori, a team member years back, re... [More]

The Mona Lisa isn't exactly Leonardo as a woman. People have thought that because his self portrait matches with the face of the Mona Lisa. I found that it also combines with the face of Salai (in two different paintings) his companion. They said they found the initials S & G in her eye, which are Salai Giacomo's initials. Mona Lisa is also an anagram for "Mon Salai" or "Salino" and Salai's face combines with both Da Vinci's self portrait and the Mona Lisa. Coincidence? Why? Check out my site and blog for my theory. One of Leo's sketches showing three faces being superimposed over each oth... [More]
