Normal faces are very symmetrical. Mona's is not.

Some have speculated that it's really a portrait of Da Vinci in drag - hence the enigmatic smile.
Dr. Lillian Schwartz of Bell Labs suggests that Leonardo painted himself, and was able to support her theory by analyzing the facial features of Leonardo's face and that of the famous painting, She digitized both the self-portrait of the artist and the Mona Lisa. She flipped the self portrait and merged the two images together using a computer. She noticed the features of the face aligned perfectly!

I agree with the comment made a bout the background. It looks like its another painting. Like a she was sitting infront of another painting. Dosnt fit at all for a
painting like this.

Now, with this in mind, take another look at the large image of the MONA LISA again posted by the OP. Look specifically at the braiding on the dress across her bust. De-focus your vision a little may help.....
Does that look strangely like some characters there amongst the linear pattern of the braiding????????? Written Left-Right or Right-Left????
