Transcript of The Mona Lisa

History
It is unknown when the Mona Lisa was actually made, but approximate guesses are between 1503 and 1506.
Created by Leonardo Da Vinci.
Stolen in 1911, but retrieved and sent back to the Louvre two years later.
In 2014, another Mona Lisa was found, speculated to be the older one.
Parodied, reproduced, and researched throughout time.
World View Changes
I believe that if the Mona Lisa was never created, some world views would indeed change. For example, I never would have looked at portrait paintings as 'relativity significant in my world' as much if it was never painted. As well, the millions of parodies and tributes would never have come to surface, and the techniques and skills used by Da Vinci would have been discovered earlier or later, maybe even never at all. The idea that even old art can still be relevant in this day and age wouldn't pop up as much if not for this amazing work. Even though considered overexposed by some, I believe that without the Mona Lisa, art appreciation wouldn't be as in depth if not for this smiling wonder.
