Mona Lisa a man?

Published:

Mona Lisa a man?
It's hardly a new theory. For years, historians have postulated that Leonardo da Vinci was really painting a self portrait when he created the Mona Lisa. Alas, like most tantalizing theories, there was little proof to back it up. Until now. A group of scientists are seeking permission to dig up the remains of Mr. da Vinci "to conduct carbon and DNA testing." According to a very popular article from Yahoo! News, the scientists believe that if the skull in intact, they could, in theory, compare it to the face of the Mona Lisa, by creating "a virtual and then physical reconstruction of Leonardo's face." If the skull has disintegrated, the scientists may have to move on to something a bit less glamorous, like determining if the original Lassie really posed for "Dogs Playing Poker."
