Da Vinci’s Knots: It’s All About the Dress

Caroline Cocciardi, Screenwriter and Producer, Mona Lisa Revealed

There is one undisputed truth about Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci’s portrait "Mona Lisa": The artist never relinquished his masterpiece. The painting remained in his possession until his death in 1519. While researching Leonardo's most famous painting, Cocciardi discovered that the embroidery on Mona Lisa's bodice is not merely decorative. It is a geometrical interlocking pattern in a design not found in Renaissance haute couture. Come hear if this interlocking pattern unlocks yet another secret Da Vinci code.
