Postcard The Mona Lisa
The postcard I am proposing is a reinterpretation of one of the most famous works of all time: The Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. This oil-on-wood painting depicts a portrait of Mona Lisa, a Florentine woman whose mysterious expression and enigmatic smile have captivated viewers for centuries.
The story of the Mona Lisa is as fascinating as the work itself. Leonardo da Vinci began work on the portrait in 1503 and worked on it for several years. Although the identity of the woman is known, why she was painted remains a mystery. Some experts believe that she was pregnant when she posed for the painting, while others speculate about a love affair between the model and the artist.
The Mona Lisa became famous in part because of Leonardo da Vinci’s fame and creative genius, but also because of the history of the painting itself. It was stolen in 1911 by a former employee of the Louvre Museum and was only recovered two years later. Since then, it has been exhibited in museums around the world and has become a symbol of the Italian Renaissance.
Your postcard offers a new interpretation of this artistic icon by focusing on the figure’s hands, which are also a key element of the original painting. Your re-adaptation invites the viewer to explore the details of the work in a new and original way, while paying tribute to the history and beauty of the original.

The postcard is sent in a bubble envelope.
