Oh, That Famous Enigmatic Smile..

Oh, That Famous Enigmatic Smile..

The famous Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo Davinci.. kept at Louvre Museum, Paris.
( the protective thick security glass which covers the original painting at Louvre has caused some distortions to my picture.. Frankly, I had so much difficulty in taking this shot over the heads of multitude of visitors flowing like a river across the large hall as if they are on a pilgrimage. It only increased my admiration of the painting and my respect to the artist, as I spent time watching the crowd for a finer moment to shoot without someone hitting me on teh elbow!!)

The Mona Lisa is the most famous painting in the history of art and
continues to inspire reproduction, parody, scientific theory, and more.
In 2003-2006 we celebrated the 500th anniversary of the painting
which now has it's own room at the Louvre. The painting has achieved
celebrity status and is continually appearing as subject
of news articles around the globe.

The painting is kept on the wall of a large room(as big as a church hall and covered with protective glass screwed on top.
Never in the history of Art has one painting been so admired. This is due largely to the enigmatic smile, which has caused much speculation.

The only reliable explanation of the 'mysterious Mona' lies within the painting itself. A painting created by a philosopher and an artist like Leonardo is not merely a beautiful image for decorating a 'Medicean saloon', but the painter's statement-his word.
Never in the history of Art has one painting been so admired. This is due largely to the enigmatic smile, which has caused much speculation.

Nobody knows for certain whom Leonardo’s Mona Lisa represents. Is Lisa Gherardini del Giocondo looking at us, or is it Leonardo’s girlish lover, his mother, or is it a compound image, perhaps even a hermaphrodite, representing several persons at the same time?
One theory is that the Mona Lisa is in fact a portrait of the artist's mother. Mystery of the Mona Lisa is an extensive research, lush, well written tale, set against the background of Italy in the 15th Century. Rich in detail and historically accurate, this unfolds the story of the early family life of the man that many consider to be the greatest creative genius in history, Leonardo da Vinci.

Dr. Lillian Schwartz of Bell Labs suggests that Leonardo painted himself, and was able to support her theory by analyzing the facial features of Leonardo's face and that of the famous painting, She digitized both the self-portrait of the artist and the Mona Lisa. She flipped the self portrait and merged the two images together using a computer. She noticed the features of the face aligned perfectly! You may draw your own conclusion.

A computer has been used to decipher the enigmatic smile of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, concluding that she was mainly happy.The painting was analysed by a University of Amsterdam computer using "emotion recognition" software.It concluded that the subject was 83% happy, 9% disgusted, 6% fearful and 2% angry, New Scientist magazine was told.

lonely and profoundly sad / in the churchyard

The church in Balinesti is a historical monument built by the High Chancellor Tautu, during the reign of Stephen the Great. The church, erected before 1493, is one of the most representative monuments of the epoch of Stephen the Great. The form is rectangular, without lateral apses and with a semi-circular vault, with double arches. The peculiarity of this church is the polygonal narthex and the short belfry-tower annexed on the southern side, before the entrance to the narthex. In front of the narthex is an open porch (blurred in this picture, in the background). The rectangular plan is an influence of the architecture of wooden churches and, although it has no lateral apses, there are polygonal apses both at the eastern end (the altar) and at the western one (the narthex). The porch is surrounded from three sides by a stone balustrade, richly adorned with sculptures in the flamboyant style. It is built in rock slabs and brick, with numerous stone-cut bas reliefs, in Gothic style - the lower part of the wall, the framings, the ribs of the porch vault. Under the cornice is a row of enameled ceramic plates, decorated with heraldic motifs. The belfry-tower stands on two pillars, placed on either side of the open porch. The porch is vaulted, with fine golden stone ribs. On the porch walls are beautiful paintings, against a blue background reminiscent of Voronet. The inset portraits of the saints in the porch are made in an interesting range of 4 or 5 hues of the same color (gray, yellow, pink and violet), of exquisite subtlety. The narthex and the nave both have semi-circular vaults. The extremely valuable interior painting was made in 1493. It is the work of a group of painters led by Gavriil Ieromonahul, the first known painter in the epoch of Stephen the Great. Gavriil was an innovator as far as the inner decoration of Moldavian churches is concerned. The key figure in the votive picture is the founder's portrait, one of the most impressive portraits in Moldavia, considering the vivid realistic style. Next to Chancellor Tautu are his wife Margareta, their daughter Anastasia (future wife to Chancellor Toader Bubuiog, the founder of the Monastery of Humor) and their two sons, Patrascu and Ioan in the foreground. On the whole, the painting at Balinesti is characterized by the suppleness of the drawings and by the brightness of the chromatic harmonies. On the facades are fragments of the mural painting dating from the time of Petru Rares. Inside the church are the tombstones of Teodor, the son of Chancellor Tautu, and of Anghelina Tautu. Repair works were undertaken at the church in 1763 and its roof was rebuilt in 1721 and 1899. After that year, the church burned and the roof was damaged for a long time, and the Austrians used it as a storehouse. (
