The painting of Mona Lisa is of course, "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world."
Still, I'll prefer to start with a little introduction to this famous painting. Mona Lisa is a portrait of a woman by renowned Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci, and it's believed to be painted between the year 1503 and 1506.
You might have seen the portrait of Mona Lisa innumerable times on the internet if not in real life. And, I'm sure you might have noticed that Mona Lisa has no clearly visible eyebrows or eyelashes.
What's the reason behind this?
Well, there are a lot of theories citing their explanations about this mystery. But, people are still not convinced and the mystery remains to prevail.
Finally a French engineer, Pascal Cotte came up with genuine evidence to prove his answer. What's his answer? Read ahead to find out.

So, his conclusion is that Mona Lisa once had both eyebrows and eyelashes, but they're gradually eroded to the point that they'rere no longer visible.
