13 Dec Mona Lisa`s secret code discovered in the eyes
Mona Lisa the other name Gioconda is the most famous painting in the world done by Italian painter and scientist Leonardo da Vinci between 1503 -1514. The painting is the priceless and it is in the permanent exhibition in Louvre.
According to the President of the Italian National Committee for Cultural Heritage Silvano Vinceti, in the eyes of the Mona Lisa drawn tiny letters and numbers. They are difficult to distinguish to the naked eye. However, when using a magnifying glass you can tell. According to experts, the right pupil of the Mona Lisa can consider letters «LV», which may be relevant to the initials of Leonardo da Vinci. In the left eye of the letters are read with difficulty, and, according to experts, it’s either CE or B.
In the background picture in the arched vault of the bridge, the number of distinguishable 72. Although, according to experts, the seven may be the letter «L».
“On the back of the painting are the numbers ‘149’, with a fourth number erased, suggesting he painted it when he was in Milan in the 1490s, using as a model a woman from the court of Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan,” said Vinceti, who claimed earlier this year that he had identified the lost remains of the painter Michelangelo da Caravaggio.
“Leonardo was keen on symbols and codes to get messages across, and he wanted us to know the identity of the model using the eyes, which he believed were the door to the soul and a means for communication,” said Vinceti.
The significance of these signs have not yet been deciphered. Currently, experts are scratching their heads over the key code entered in the eyes of the Mona Lisa.
To arrive at a theory worthy of The Da Vinci Code, Dan Brown’s 2003 bestseller, researcher Silvano Vinceti avoided the Mona Lisa’s enigmatic smile and instead gazed deep into her eyes with the help of high-resolution images.
In The Da Vinci Code, Brown suggests Mona Lisa is an anagram for Amon l’Isa, referring to ancient Egyptian deities.
