Sculpture in the round
This sculpture in the round inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s painting ‘Mona Lisa’.
It is still a matter of debate who is depicted in this painting.
Is it a portrait in which Leonardo himself was a model or is it the image of an unknown lady?
My Mona Lisa is part of the 'Historical Ladies' series. Although we don't know who Mona Lisa really is, it's a well-known name that is familiar to many people. Just like the names Cleopatra and Catherine de' Medici.
The controversy regarding her identity gives me the basis for the elaboration of this sculpture in the round.
