What Is So Special About Mona Lisa? by Nipeks(m): 7:13pm On Sep 26, 2013
People say it is the technique he used, the way he painted the eyes, the way she smiles blah blah blah but me I think the portrait is over hyped. There are portraits that are more perfect than perfect than Mona Lisa but didn't get that much recognition. The value of an art is directly proportional to its publicity whether beautiful not. This is the same for other form of art like music.

Well, I was made to understand that "it is not the painting that is special but the one who painted it and the mystery behind such beautiful work of art."

Mona Lisa represent different interpretation to different people. That is what is special about it.

I think it represents "having pains in your heart yet having a smilling face!" in short, suffering and smilling! I hope am right.

The painting is not just famous for the technique used in creating such a portrait but has to do with the artist and the mysticism behind this beautiful piece of art (Bullocks).

There're several conspiracy theories as to what the picture was/is dicpicting. Some say the woman in the picture is not a woman at all but the gay lover of Leonardo Dan Vinci (The artist) and it's the reason why he/she has that weird smirk on her/his face. Remember, homosexuality was a serious offence during his generation and not just that, it was heresy to the catholic church and punishable by death. He was just trying to tell the world that he was gay without actually verbally confirming he was homosexual.

There're other conspiracy theory that is just absolutely ridiculous. I just believe these conspiracy theories are just hype to increase the value and worth of this painting. Currently the worth of this painting is priceless. I think it was insured for $20Mil. To me, all I see is a fat ugly beast of a woman smiling through the painting.

For someone to paint something like this( heard it was painted during the 16's or so; i stand to be corrected though) shows pure class. IMHO...
