Leonardo Da Vinci To Be Exhumed

She could be a he!

I’m not really sure if I care, but scientists are hoping to exhume the body of Leonardo Da Vinci so they can reconstruct his face and prove one way or another if the Mona Lisa is a self portrait.  Now all they have to do is find his skull. Here’s the thing people, Leo was originally buried in a church that was destroyed during the French Revolution in 1789 and his remains were carted over to the smaller chapel of Saint Hubert at Amboise Castle and reburied. DNA testing will have to be done to confirm the identity of the remains as the inscription on the tomb says “presumed” to be the master’s. It could be friggin anyone’s!

Psst Still no cure for cancer.

  1. having cured world poverty and war, the scientists have to do something with our money, other than getting a proper job!

  2. Mona Lisa is named for Lisa del Giocondo, a member of the Gherardini family of Florence and Tuscany and the wife of wealthy Florentine silk merchant Francesco del Giocondo. The painting was commissioned for their new home and to celebrate the birth of their second son, Andrea.

    The sitter’s identity was ascertained at the University of Heidelberg in 2005 by a library expert who discovered a 1503 margin note written by Agostino Vespucci.

    NOW, on to that cancer thingy.

  3. The Celtic Queen

    And if she is a ‘he’ who really cares?
    More wasted dollars.

  4. After 220 years, that sumbitch gotta stink big time.
