Mona Lisa is Small

This picture is part of a posting on a blog called Why the Mona Lisa's eyes follow you around. The blog is part of a collection of blogs that can found at ScienceBlogs.

I always imagined the painting Mona Lisa was significantly larger.

I still would like to see it, but at least now I will not be caught off guard and feel that initial dissapointment that it is smaller than I expected.

Did you know that Mona Lisa has no visible facial hair at all - including eyebrows and eyelashes?

Yep, it's rather underwhelming in person, especially behind all that bulletproof glass. And there are other really great, enormous Da Vincis in the same room.
