    There is a ressemblance with Salai

    [​IMG]
    John the Batist
    Leonardo (1513-16) Several copies exist, including one by Salai himself.
    Salai

    Looking at this wonderful painting I can say that to me the only mystery is the mind of Leonardo. He was a real genius, he shone in every branch of knowledge :shock:
    The only question I have is: why is this painting in France? Leonardo was Italian...:eusa_think:

    I thought I had read once that there was a theory that the Mona Lisa was actually a self portrait.

    I've also read something like that Chris :)
    Some people also say that Mona Lisa would be some kind of "gay painting" because her smile would be based on Leonardo's gay lover...but nobody show any evidence for that :eek-52:
