    Or, if you like, "La Gioconda."

    Archaeologists' Mona Lisa search in Florence (BBC News)
    Questions about the identity of the subject in da Vinci's most famous work are addressed here, at Wiki.

    And see Sky News Australia, Mona Lisa muse possibly found

    Some mysteries should never be solved.

    I know it's been over 500 years, but digging up these bones - um, a bit like grave-robbing, methinks.

    I lived in southern Italy for three years. The people I knew considered it their duty to unearth the past. Undoubtedly because they have so much more of it. We have a measly 230 years,

    They're so proud of their cultural heritage.
