because it was the first portrait painting in which no matter from which angle you look at it, it's eyes will always follow you, I thinks that's the main reason why it became so famous.

because of that dumb hoe's "mysterious smile" while in truth she was most likely a hooker that he picked up had sex with and painted, some theory i heard a while ago.

The theory that I like is that it's a self-portrait of Leonardo as a women.

Yeah, I knew about if before the whole Da Vinci code thing, but that's where the theory got really popular. Leonardo most likely was gay (there's evidence all over, such as him never beng recorded with a woman, never marrying and lavishing gifts on one of his apprentices), so maybe he self-identified as a woman or something. And that, my dear crazyhindu, is the reason for the smile.

Honestly though, we'll never know for sure.
Technology has discovered that the Mona Lisa has been painted over many times and what is most likely the original layer, she is wearing what is to be believed the pregnancy robes of the time, so perhaps she's smiling 'cause she's about to plop out a baby? Who knows for sure, the original reason died the the Renaissance man himself.

I heard that if we post xzibit or leonardo dicaprio on inception-related posts we get thumbs.

So i thought, why not both?

my point being, this piece of art isnt about what you see
its about the message
but you know, youll get it once you grow a lil

You sound exactly like those pretentious assholes who buy this type of stuff. A message in art is implied, left for our interpretation, that usually means it starts off showing EFFORT and this, looks like ****. Forget the "message" it sends, if you are able to find one then it isn't there, you're just over-analyzing it. Which is what everyone does with art now, they see ****, over-anaylze it to be some genious piece of work, and buy it for a giant sum of cash just because they can have "an original work".

That's like saying you'll plant a dildo in your front yard instead of a tree. "Nononono you see the dildo is about how I like to go outside in the middle of the night and have sex with my lawn, It's about stopping world hunger"

thats the problem with your reasoning, there is no link between dildo and world hunger

Whoa isn't this the internet? Aren't we supposed to hate on artist and art students? Where are the comments about art students are ******* fags and waste their money on trying to achieve art?

Who ever said it was a waste?

It's how you use it that counts. Some people aren't cut out for other fields, some people aren't even cut out for college. Those that take art classes should probably know that they won't make much money in the field, but its a field that they enjoy, so why have them try to go into something like engineering where they probably won't even make it?
