THE OTHER MONA LISA


photographed by Brian Bezalel

in

Madrid, Spain – Many copies of “Mona Lisa” were painted years after the fact, but this copy is different, because evidence shows it was painted at the same time and in the same studio as the original masterpiece, probably by one of Leonardo’s assistants or pupils.

The copy shows the same woman and the same landscape, but depicts the woman in a more youthful and vibrant fashion, because the original masterpiece has been dulled by layers of cracked varnish. This copy is now one of the most important sources of information for working procedures in Leonardo’s studios.

It is on view in the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain, with little fanfare or protection, unlike the original.

    Both love or hate Elmo, and I am an Elmo-hater. He’s way too cheerful, his voice is just too high-pitched, and he’s so hyper.
    His laughter is even worse, and this toy almost all about making
    her laugh.

    I honestly just didn’t pay attention to appeal
    of it. There are a great deal of of moving toys and talking toys, so why was Elmo such a lrage benefit?
    People were getting injured rushing into stores to grab these to the peak!
    I often wonder if your women who camp out from stores and pull each other’s hair trying to triumphantly nab
    one within the few fad toys left in stock ever feel stupid later on as their kids loses fixation on the toy within a week, and store shelves are piled high all of them.
