I just read this article today about the famous painting. For some reasons, I always loved this portrait.

Mona Lisa, or La Gioconda (La Joconde) is a 16th-century portrait painted in oil on a poplar panel by Leonardo Da Vinci. Perhaps the most famous painting in the world, the Mona Lisa is the subject of a great deal of theorizing and speculation.
Many aspects of the painting have been subject to speculation such as the identity of the model, the original size of the painting, whether there were other versions of it, and various explanations for how the effect of an enigmatic smile was achieved.
Yes, it must be because of the enigmatic smile…
