Interesting..Did Da Vinci leave a code within Mona Lisas eyes?

OR would you say it's probably just age worn damage?

  • I'm going to guess it's just worn. People see what they want to see - and if someone charismatic believes in something enough they can get other people to see it as well.

  • It would not surprise me if it's some kind of code. But, i doubt it has anything to do with the holy grail.

  • I saw the mona lisa in person many years ago, and it was enigmatic. But, to say that there's a code is really reaching far beyond my ability to believe.

  • If they are there, well maybe the entire painting was color-coded...you know, like a child's coloring book, each number in the picture refers to the color you're supposed to use. Just kidding. Actually if there are numbers or letters in the eyes, it's pretty amazing that someone back then could hide something in a painting that can only be seen/discovered using today's technology. To me it would simply be a manifestation of the man's genius. Wouldn't be surprised to see a Dan Brown novel involving the Mona Liza sometime in the not to distant future though.
