6 Interesting Facts about Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ Portrait

Eyebrows are controversial

Some claim that the reason Mona Lisa has no eyebrows is because Da Vinci never actually gotten the chance to paint them.

Others, who agree with the assumption that Mona Lisa is actually a wealthy woman named Lisa Gherardini, claim that a woman of her status would pluck her eyebrows and eyelashes.

Some people believe that the reason is much simpler – the painting is quite old and while in a remarkably good condition, the eyebrows could have just faded over time. To this day, the scholars cannot come to a single conclusion about Mona Lisa’s eyebrows.
