Da Vinci painted tiny Symbols into Mona Lisa's Eyes
 
 

Leonardo Da Vinci is still dazzling scientists and mystery hunters 500 years after his death. In 2007 secrets of the Last Supper made big waves. Now Mona Lisa is in the spot light. Under the microscope tiny symbols and letters become visible. In the right eye Da Vinci wrote LV. The symbols in the left eye are not as defined. They could be CE or the letter B. There is also a symbol in the arch of the bridge in the background that either is 72 or L2.

This Dan Brown like story is supposed to be true and the group of Italians say that they got onto the track of the hidden Mona Lisa symbols through an old book found in an antique shop.

If this new symbols found in the Mona Lisa painting will reveal anything new about the identity of Mona Lisa or about Da Vinci is unclear. The group around Sivano Vincenti who found the symbols is also behind the effort to exhume Leonardo Da Vinci to unlock some of Da Vinci's secrets.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
