Moaning Lisa wasn’t very highbrow was she?

The Mona Lisa has no eyebrows, apparently it was fashionable to shave them in the Renaissance era. Or maybe Da Vinci just ran out of eyebrow paint. Apparently it took Leonardo around 15 years to complete the picture, which he finished shortly before his death in 1519. It can be found in the Louvre in Paris.

About justwilliam1959

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
