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.
