Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish.
THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS
Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.
Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.

I love Natasha Romanoff, I do, but can we remember another Marvel lady who wasn’t sexualised, who was clever and badass?
While we’re on the subject:
And special kudo’s to Mystique, who managed to be bad ass and clever and compelling and completely made me forget the fact that she was running around naked.
Award for best addition to my post.
WHAT IF THEY REMEMBER ADAM.
WHAT IF DESTIEL BECOMES CANON.
WHAT IF BALTHAZAR, MARY, JOHN AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO DIED RETURNED.
