mona lisa, a biography
As a little girl, Mona Lisa carried a special charm in her left pocket. She recited poems to her teachers and was known for her whimsical free verse. Her hair was always a little wild and she was often seen observing formations of clouds in the sky. When she was 14, she fell in love with a travelling musician. He broke her heart. Some people thought that she was a dreamer, others that she was charmingly mysterious; according to her diaries, she was very shy. She went to Venice one summer and bought a parrot from South America. She called it Leo (for obvious reasons). She studied contraposto painting in a studio near the Arno, which is where Da Vinci first saw her smile. Mona Lisa understood her own inner world and loved to share it with her friends (often in cafes). Had she not become a work of art, surely she would be remembered for her sensitive perspective and her love for the color green.
