Mona Lisa is a Man: Salai & Gian Giacomo Caprotti?
Researchers say the Mona Lisa, da Vinci's model, may have been a man named Gian Giacomo Caprotti aka Salai. He was Leonardo's male apprentice, longtime companion and possible lover.
Art historians have long theorized about the Mona Lisa painting, as well as Leonardo Da Vinci's other works of art.
Salai, or Gian Giacomo Caprotti, was an effeminate young artist who worked with da Vinci for 25 years.
Do you think the Mona Lisa is really a man or is it just another conspiracy theory?
