Mona Lisa is so famous, there are at least two country western songs with her in it. The above is one line; the other is part of one of my favorite songs: “There’s only one Mona Lisa, one leaning tower of Pisa, one Paris, and there’s only one you.”
There is a cool new art show out in San Francisco. (Wonder if I could get cheap tickets? Maybe I could go out and see it while R is there for MacWorld.)
The founder of Lumiere Technology invented a new camera that takes pics of things we can’t see… It shows that Mona Lisa does have eyebrows, that her hand is in the position it is because she is holding up a blanket, that her dress has lace, that the background used to be vivid, and that she wasn’t sickly… among other things. Live Science has it.
You can also read about Mona Lisa’s changing smile, see the left eyebrow, and enjoy some of Da Vinci’s best ideas, including pics.
