Artist's Description

This was taken with a Lumix 14pxl camera, not sure much else about it as it was my school’s camera. 2.4mb.
This year I am creating my artwork around the recent discovery of codes found in the Mona Lisa’s eye under a high resolution magnifying glass. My own work revolves around how the eyes are the key to our soul and reveals our true self. Especially considering Da Vinci’s codes were found in Mona’s Eye.

I use photographs as a reference point for my drawings, and originally this piece was to only feature my eye and the magnifying glass, but as we progressed we thought it would be interesting to reflect something in the glass. As it was focused around Da Vinci, I grabbed the copy of the Mona Lisa from my room and began to experiment. We soon found it was a lot harder than it sounded. After four hours we finally got this shot.

This piece has not at all been photoshopped and only basic editing such as brightness and contrast has been added to lift the image of Mona.
