Salut à tou.te.s,

Who is she? Why is she smiling? Or is it really a smile? Her eyes don't seem to convey the same emotion. So much history, mystery, fascination is contained in this Leonardo Da Vinci masterpiece. But is it enough to justify the several tens of thousands of visitors coming to the Louvre every day only to catch a glimpse of the Mona Lisa?
