|Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci|
I never believed that Mona was a self portrait and there has been some talk about Mona being a man not a woman but that is not going to sit well around here. I sell Mona Lisa Ties and have always loved her so I don't care what any art historian says. That alluring Mona Lisa smile cannot be that of a man, can it?

Mona Lisa (also known as La Gioconda or La Joconde) is a 16th-century portrait painted in oil on a poplar panel by Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci during the Renaissance in Florence, Italy. The portrait was painted in Florence between 1503 and 1506. It is thought to be of Lisa Gherardini, wife of a Florentine cloth merchant Francesco del Giocondo. The work is currently owned by the Government of France and is on display at the Musée du Louvre in Paris under the title Portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo.
