Project Mona Lisa®
The project was inspired by the Mona Lisa painting, a half-length portrait of a woman by Italian artist, Leonardo da Vinci, which has been acclaimed as "the best known” and by far the most valued painting in the world. The several attempts to vandalize this painting did not change its increasing value and is considered the most expensive painting in the world. Despite the vandalism and additional damage performed on the Mona Lisa, the painting still increases drastically in its value, which is synonymous to the message Project Mona Lisa conveys to women that we are all a masterpiece.
