    It was day where he was painting Mona Lisa and Da Vinci was so involved in painting that he did'nt knew that his pant was fallen or was not wearing that time, which made Mona Lisa laugh where she could not control so gave smile which look very pleasant.

    Da Vinci did not use any technique other than combination of realism and surealism. he achieved this due to his long term experience in the profession. Mona Lisa herself felt honored having to pose for the art icon 'Da Vinci' The jesters were able to make an impact to change her mood from despair to delight.

    It's all in the smile. Is it one that expresses happiness or sadness? Look at the eyes. They are old eyes, older than the woman herself and knowing, seductive. What has she seen or experienced? Do her eyes match the smile? Does she not want to smile at all? And look, too, at the hands. Are they relaxed? Or is she uncomfortable holding them so. I notice the softness and straightness of the fingers in the top hand, but the bottom hand looks like it is almost clenching the armrest of the chair. For me, it's the contradictions one sees in the Mona Lisa that makes it so compelling.
