Mona Lisa was a Chinese slave
Specialists were on the verge of solving the mystery of one of the most popular paintings all over the world - the "Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci. Italian historian Angelo Paratico presented, with whom indeed written the canvas.
Paratico the last 20 years he has lived in Hong Kong and all these years was engaged in that studied the relationship between Italy and China over the past half Millennium. The years have allowed him to establish the relationship between Da Vinci and China, and to imagine that the artist painted the Mona Lisa with his own mother, who, most likely, was a Chinese slave girl.
"I am convinced that mother Leonardo was born in the East but in order to prove that it belongs to Eastern China, you need to use the method of deduction," said Paratico. It is now established that the Pope Leonardo was a notary and his mother, a peasant woman named Caterina. "The 1st rich visitor father Leonardo was a slave - also named Katherine. After 1452, the year of the birth of Leonardo Da Vinci, it disappears from the documents quoted historian Daily Mail.
According to his statement, that in the Renaissance in States such as Italy and Spain, Asian, slaves were not uncommon. Confirmation of this hypothesis Paratico believes that 1 of the most fashionable in the world of artists painted the portrait of the left hand from left to right and was a vegetarian, which in those days were rare. Also, the assumption that the Mona Lisa is written with mom Leonardo, made in 1910, and Sigmund Freud. Paratico also saw the Chinese landscape in the background and Chinese outline of the face model. The only method to solve this mystery is to exhume the remains of the artist and to carry out DNA analysis, says a historian. Own assumptions he told in the book, which will be released in the next year.
We would add that the Mona Lisa or "La Gioconda" is one of the most famous works of art in the world, which, as they say, is a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of a silk merchant from Florence Francesco del Gioconda, written about 1503-1505. The full title of the painting "Portrait of Ms. Lisa the Gioconda". But specific information about who is certainly shown in the picture, still not that incites a lot of various hypotheses, theories and assumptions.
