Photo of the Week - Mona Lisa - Louvre Museum, Paris

Posted by Picasa

The Italians call it " La Gioconda", the French call it " La Joconde" and we all call it the " Mona Lisa". At the Louvre museum, all roads lead to Mona Lisa. This famous painting , by the genius Leonardo Da Vinci, was surprisingly small in size compared to most other paintings in the Italian section. The painting's current value is estimated to be in excess of $0.5 Billion.

I started the Louvre tour at the Mona Lisa and was lucky because the crowd was quite less in the afternoon.
