Save Mona


The Mona Lisa, Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece of a mysterious woman with a slight smile, is deteriorating, and the Louvre Museum said Monday it will conduct an in-depth technical study to determine why.

The Louvre said the condition of the Mona Lisa was causing "some worry" and that a new study on the state of the work has been launched.

I've been fortunate enough to see good, old Mona twice. I'd hate to think the past time would be my last.

Get that woman a good plastic surgeon and some collagen! :)

You Said

how the heck is it deteriorating? It is supposedly in an air-tight climate controlled box with ultraviolet filtering glass and I believe the atmosphere in the box is filled with argon which is inert. That is what we use to protect the U.S. Constitution and that works fine. Either I'm wrong or the French goofed up!

And the French goofing up would surprise you? They are just oh-so competent.

Maybe Michael Jackson could give Mona Lisa some pointers?

Says: Lisa at April 26, 2004 11:58 PM

I agree. She is beautiful. There's something mysterious about her. Love the painting.
