Historians discover tiny numbers and letters in the eyes of the Mona Lisa

Lordy help me, there must be a conspiracy here somewhere, but since I have no idea where to post this, I guess the mod can move it,


Lisa was at the centre of a new mystery yesterday after art detectives took a fresh look at the masterpiece – and noticed something in her eyes.

Hidden in the dark paint of her pupils are tiny letters and numbers, placed there by the artist Leonardo da Vinci and revealed only now thanks to high-­magnification techniques.

Tiny numbers and letters.


‘In the right eye appear to be the letters LV which could well stand for his name, Leonardo da Vinci, while in the left eye there are also symbols but they are not as defined.

‘It is very difficult to make them out clearly but they appear to be the letters CE, or it could be the letter B.

‘In the arch of the bridge in the background the number 72 can be seen or it could be an L and the number 2.

Perhaps Devinci was cheating by using a oil paint by numbers kit!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

This article is probably the one and only purpose for an art history major, hahahaha. Anyway, it could very well be his initials as the article suggest. It is intriguing though.
