Mona Lisa Eyes Secret & Hidden Message?

Art experts have discovered tiny painted symbols, part of possibly a secret hidden message, in the eyes of the Leonardo Da Vinci's most famous portrait the Mona Lisa which is hanging in the Louvre in Paris.

Leonardo Da Vinci's most famous work of art, the Mona Lisa, has been pored over by everyone from tourists to art historians, from amateurs to experts, for many years.

This is an extraordinary development for Dan Brown, whose successful novel The Da Vinci Code involved this very combination of well-known paintings, mathematics, overdetermined cryptology, and unfalsifiable conjecture.

What could the secret or the hidden message in Mona Lisa's eyes be? Do you think Leonardo Da Vinci was trying to hide something inside Mona Lisa's eyes?

Italy's National Committee for Cultural Heritage has revealed letters and numbers can be seen by magnifying high resolution images of Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa. These secret symbols were painted in Mona Lisa's eyes.

The guy in charge of analyzing the painting said that in the right eye appear to be the letters LV which could stand for Leonardo Da Vinci while in the left eye there are also symbols but not as defined.

Some claim the letters are not a hidden message or a secret, they may be the initials of the woman's name.

If these are the initials of the model, it would further discredit the theory the model is Lisa Gherardini, the wife of a merchant in Florence.
