The centuries-old enigma of the Mona Lisa smile...finally SOLVED!!

Well, I have to admit there are also other versions according to some art historians.

Some think it might be Leonardo´s model and  also lover:  Salai
It is no secret that Leonardo was gay.

Some think it might have been Leonardo himself, in drag, doing a self-portrait, in which case the smile simply means: "If you suckers only knew ".

But I believe that, even if it´s Salai or Leonardo´s self-portrait in drag, the enigma of the smile itself is best explained by my interpretation. I mean, look at the swollen and semi-closed eyelids and the goofy smile. What else could it be?

Here are some links on the subject:
