Mona Lisa Test?
>



Who is the mysterious woman in Leonardo DaVinci's
masterpiece? Mona Lisa is named for Lisa del Giocondo, (c. 1502) the wife of a
merchant of Florence. Lisa was a member of the Gherardini family of
Florence and Tuscany who married Francesco del Giocondo, a silk
merchant.

In the DaVinci Code, it was conjectured that mona lisa was an anagram of Amon and Isis, Egyptian gods - with Isis rendered in French. We notice her name spells 'aim loans.' Was Leonardo warning us about the subprime mortgage meltdown? Or perhaps it's an obscure reference to the 'alternative investment market' in the UK. More on
