Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish.
THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS
Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.
Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.

I am frightened.))
Your house has been transported to the Void. Outside of your warm, loving home filled with memories is nothing. There is no heat. There is no sound. There is no light. Anything that goes in, might not come out. But in order to bring yourself back to your country, your county, your neighborhood, you must go out. You must take initiative. You are the only one capable. Who knows how your elements behave once you exit your dwelling place. But it is a risk you must take, in order for your life to continue. But once you open the door and step outside, your sight and your hearing will mean nothing to you. You must rely on your other senses to navigate your way through the endless abyss. You might find the answer to the universe. There are endless possibilities. A light switch? A god? You might find someone else in the same place you are, struggling, wanting to come home, as you also desire. You might not. But whatever you find, if anything, will stay in your mind forever. Or you could just stay home, you have Wi-Fi here.
((…There sure is a lot of lightning in this Void.
It’s progressed to late-evening-dark, but I think I’ll stay inside. XD))
IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THIS!!!
I struggle with depression and anger, and my parents don’t like it. They accused me yesterday of being on my phone too much (I was on Tumblr a lot, I will admit)
Being angry like I am, I got upset at them and tried to defend myself, saying that internet friends are some of the most important people in my life.
Now they want to see if my internet friends will come through for me!!
I feel a bit discouraged, because I have 25 followers. And 3000 is a big number. But please everyone, repost this so it’ll have a pay-it-forward kind of effect…
If you love your internet friends, help me prove my parents wrong, and show them that internet friends ARE real!!
Also I can’t believe this is such a horrible picture of myself but I don’t care because my looks don’t matter to the people that care :D
