I always thought it ridiculous how the reason cited for the mona lisa becoming famous and so special is her half smile. That is the most contrived bs reason hinging on fantasy. There is nothing special about her smile. It reminds me of that social test they did where they put water in a perfume decantor and some people imagined a subtle scent. people are full of shit. Didn't this picture hang in someone's bathroom before? I wouldn't even hang it in my house, it's damn ugly. I would surely sell it of course because of it's value to others that i do not care for nor see. The reason it's famous is because its by leonardo da vinci and since he is revered so much because of his other genius and painting was not one of them though. It's more of a historical artificact, to me as being the real reason and the stupid musings about the smile is like reading too much into nothing bs to legitimize why this painting deserves such status. Not politically correct opinion but i don't like the painting, honestly. I feel catharted having admitted that and a weight lifted. Something had to be the most famous painting in this part of the multiverse and this was it. lmfao.
