Leonardo Da Vinci....Transvestite?

abc.net - Leonardo Da Vinci's remains are to be exhumed to allow scientists to establish whether the Mona Lisa is a disguised self-portrait.

Scientists and historians from Italy's National Committee for Cultural Heritage have sought permission to open the artist's tomb in France's Loire Valley.

They hope to find his skull which they can use to reconstruct his face to discover whether his famed masterpiece, the Mona Lisa, is in fact a self-portrait in disguise.

Mystery has surrounded the identity of the Mona Lisa for centuries.

Scholars have suggested Da Vinci's presumed homosexuality and love of riddles led him to paint himself as a woman.

Speculation on the sitter has also ranged from Lisa Gherardini, the wife of a Florentine merchant, to Da Vinci's mother.

NOTE: personally, I admire Da Vinci and his accomplishments immensely. The fact that this exhumation will take place for the matter described, IMO, is absurd...Lon
