The secrets of the Mona Lisa revealed
Pascal Cotte was granted unprecedented access by the French Government and The Louvre Museum to conduct an extensive scientific evaluation of this masterpiece. He did so under strict security and supervision, taking her out of her frame and away from the protective glass enclosure. His photographic examination and findings have startled the art world – making revelations including identifying her original pigment colors, proving she indeed did have eyebrows and eyelashes and producing the world’s only 360° walk around replica.
