Anyone know if there are plans to create a framed replica of the Mona Lisa painting.... I would love to find a good giclee replica with the "So Dark the Con of Man" line written in UV paint across it that could only be seen with a blacklight. I'm sure one of the many talented artisans here could lend a thought or 2 to this...

Actually, it wasn't written on the painting. It's written on the glass infront of the painting. The Mona Lisa is in a cabinet in the Louvre, not hanging out in the open. You can see the shadow of the writing on the painting when the light shines on it.

Go on ebay, buy a mona lisa poster, and a uv invisible ink marker. You can by a frame at walmart all for a total of around 20-30 dollars. I still need to do mine, but I have it all worked out.

Check out something like paintedwithoil.com, they have done some real interesting reproductions, not too costly.

Of course, to be really accurate you need to write "This is a fake" under the paint with magic marker...

It would go without saying if the copy is bigger than a magazine. The real one isn't as big as most people think.

Or if it's painted/printed on anything other than a slab of wood. She's not a canvas lass.

The Mona Lisa, was, according to virtually all art historians, a painted portrait of Madam Lisa Gioconda, wife of rich Italian businessman, Francesco Gioconda. And part of the reason her smile and overall expression is so "mysterious," is because she has no eyebrows, as, in Italy during the Renaissance, it was considered highly fashionable for women to shave them off.
