Leonardo, we still love you

Mona Lisa Identity found

Lisa del Giocondo -
Among the unsurprised will be the staff of the Louvre, where the painting hangs. The museum doesn’t even have to change the masterpiece’s label — “Portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo” — though it may decide to delete one line from the description of the painting on its web site: “Among the aspects which remain unclear are the exact identity of the sitter.”
For another Leonardo fix see The Last Supper in detail (nice music too). Zoom in and reflect on the fact that conservative Catholics and art scholars continue to deny that seated to Jesus' right is Mary Magdalene or even a female.

Faith is the non-belief in things in front of your eyes.
