Interesting facts about Mona Lisa art piece

Mona Lisa is perhaps the most popular and talked about art piece in the world. Painted by the most celebrated painter, Leonardo Da Vinci, this painting has been a matter of interest for many.

Here I will disclose some interesting facts about this mysterious painting.

The name of the painting, Mona Lisa was the result of a spelling error! The original name of the painting was Monna Lisa. Monna is Italian is a short form of Madonna, meaning 'My Lady'.

The identity of the woman in the painting is a mystery. Some believe that it is the female form of Leonardo Da Vinci. Most popular belief is that the woman was Lisa Gherardini, who was 24-years-old and a mother of two sons.

The painting has an imperfection. In 1956, a man named Ugo Ungaza threw a stone at the painting. This resulted in a small patch of damaged paint next to her left elbow.

The painting is considered priceless and so it cannot be insured.

The painting in the Louvre has a room of its own. It is protected in a climate controlled environment.
