Pascal Cotte announced that he has found proof that Leonardo da Vinci painted the original portrait “Mona Lisa” with eyelashes and eyebrows.
Cotte examined the painting with a high-definition camera using several light spectrums, ultra-violet and infrared. The images can be seen in an exhibition called ‘Mona Lisa Secrets Revealed‘.
He magnified the portrait 24 times and found a single brushstroke of a single hair above the left brow.
Cotte’s examination led him to some additional discoveries about the mystery artwork.
It shows that the fingers of the Mona Lisa’s left hand were actually painted in a slightly different position than to see finally.
Many other findings could be made within the infrared layer of the ultra-high resolution scans.
It seems the long mystery of Mona Lisa eyebrow is solved now!
