The mystery of the smile of Mona Lisa is solved

Afbeelding van de Mona Lisa
The worlds most famous painting, the Mona Lisa in the Louvre museum, probably owes its fame to the mysterious smile of the wife of the Florence based silk trader Francesco del Giocondo. What was she really thinking when Leonardo da Vinci painted her, way back in 1505?
The Louvre can hide the painting now, because the mystery is solved. According to the British newspaper The Independent, scientists of the University of Amsterdam have made a computer program to analyze emotions in faces. So, just take 83 per cent happyness, 9 per cent disgust, 6 per cent fear and 2 per cent anger. Voila, another Mona Lisa...
Now sure, that was a very clever job they did. But hey, shouldn't some mysteries just remain mysteries?
