I found something interesting - remember this post I made on 3/7/07? Could This Be Why? Just a simple explanation to my mind of why La Gioconda, a/k/a Mona Lisa, seems to possess such an enigmatic, all-knowing yet "stare-into-nothingness" expression, not quite a smile. I decided it was her lack of eyebrows, leaving only brow muscle, and made my theory plain in that post. Go ahead, read it, don't be shy. Wait, you probably did already. Anyway, it's similar to the reaction we get while looking at a dog stare at us - we can superimpose any emotion on them, being very anthropomorphic, because they have no eyebrows, just brow muscles.
So my ego is out of control, seems I have a point according to scientists. Allow me to indulge. Here's the Welcome page you all get when you sign on, Welcome, Luddie343 take a read of the article about Mona Lisa, then just for kicks, flip through the assorted other Da Vinci mysteries, like The Last Supper (of "Da Vinci Code" popularity) and how superimposition and high-speed camera research found other details in that painting. Oh you all probably did this already! Just flouting my insight, hope I'm not hoist on my own petard by this blatant prostitution of my ego. Who doesn't like being at least a little right a little of the time? Nice mystery, nicely quasi-solved. Nice weather!
