Scientists plan to exhume the remains of Leonardo da Vinci to try to determine if his Mona Lisa was actually a self-portrait of himself in drag. If they find his skull to be well-preserved, the scientists can then use CAT scan imaging technology to reconstruct his face.

Scientists are also hoping to determine da Vinci’s cause of death, as well as how many times Dan Brown’s dumb book has made him turn over in his grave. |Art Daily|
