Sure Kid – I See The Whole Friggin’ Zoo!

A Rochester, NY graphic designer and artist has found what he says are images of animals in Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, the Mona Lisa.

Paintings from the Renaissance are supposedly dripping with hidden pictures of all sorts of things.   While doing research for an art project, Ron Piccirillo either turned the image “on her side and noticed the ape’s face and the lion’s head” or he was just lying drunk on the floor and studied the painting in its original upright position.

Piccirillo said he poured over passages in da Vinci’s own notebook where the artist refers to the animals and other clues. He said,  “We have the  the whole ape face and it’s facing right. Over here we’re looking at the lion’s head. It’s almost roaring to me.”

Actually I have the original Mona Lisa hanging in my hallway (it HAD BETTER be the original-  or I got screwed out of $75-bucks!).  While taking off my boots and leaning on it one night, I actually saw George Washington slow dancing with Tina Turner. I have never again gone back to that particular corner pharmaceutical retailer.

One widely-held assumption about Mona Lisa’s mysterious smile is that she just learned she was pregnant.  I believe she’s smiling because she’s just learned she’s not.
