    Da Vinci Leaves Hints In Mona Lisa: Backdrop Landscape Located

    Da Vinci leaves hints to Mona Lisa: Backdrop landscape located

    Published: 27 November, 2012, 18:39

    Mona Lisa b ackdrop landscape located

    The centuries-old enigma of the location of the landscape behind the Mona Lisa may have been solved. Italian researchers say a hidden clue identifies the exact location of the background to the world’s most famous artwork.

    If you look very closely at the most mysterious Da Vinci painting, you would see a bridge above the left shoulder of Mona Lisa. Italian art historian Carla Glori claims that it is that the three-arched bridge hints at a hillside village called Bobbio in Northern Italy, The Daily Telegraph reports.

    This idea was prompted by another recent discovery made by Italian art historian Silvano Vinceti. He says the hidden numbers 7 and 2 are painted beneath the bridge. Glori alleges these numbers where deliberately painted in by the Great Renaissance master so that the background could be identified.

    She claims the numbers in fact refer to year 1472, when the Bobbio bridge known as Ponte Gobbo or Ponte Vecchio collapsed after a flood of the Trebbia River.

    "Leonardo added in the number 72 beneath the bridge to record the devastating flood of the River Trebbia and to allow it to be identified," The Daily Telegraph quotes Carla Glori as saying.

    The Mona Lisa is believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506 in Florence and still remains one of the most mysterious artwork of all times. Until recently most art historians agreed that the landscape in the painting was the fruit of the artist’s imagination.

    This is cool, that this enigma can leave glues to every painting painted and every invention imagined

    the Mona Lisa is the size of a tic-tac

    chances are "72" are just two brush strokes...i know i've made brush strokes similar in the past...

    Well in assasins creed 2 they have Da Vinci in and I like how they match his true life.


    On topic: Da Vinci is an epic man and with the skills unmatched and he is not the only one to do this and will not be the last past enigma to leave hints in their work

    im sorry but even though im an artist myself... i just dont care about the Mona Lisa (i love Da Vinci though)... its such a plain painting... i really dont get what the fuss over it is... who cares why it was painted... maybe DaVinci just wanted to paint it because... he wanted to... theres no underlying message... its just a picture he wanted to paint.

    I have so many paintings that people ask me "whats it mean?"

    IT DOESNT MEAN $#@!! i just wanted to paint it because it looks cool!! is it that unreasonable?

    "whats the meaning behind this painting?"

    it looks cool. thats what the meaning is... stop over analyzing...
