Mona Lisa's eyes reveal some secrets
They said it was her smile. Well, they were wrong. It's all about Mona Lisa's eyes. What exactly is it? Possibly the answer to just who the mysterious Mona Lisa really was? An Italian researcher says he has found tiny letters in her eyes that may tell her secret identity.
The right eye has an "L" and a "V", likely for Leonardo Vinci. In the left, the letters B, S or CE were found. Though it is not known whose initials those letters would stand for, it does contradict the common belief that Mona Lisa was Lisa Gherardini, the wife of a Florentine merchant.
