For centuries, Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” and her enigmatic smile have inspired as much speculation as admiration. Now she’s ready to answer questions — in Mandarin.
A digital, interactive version of the renowned 16th century painting is one of 61 high-tech replicas breathing life into classical and ancient art works in the “World Classic Interactive Arts Exhibition” which opened in Beijing the last week of August.
These recreations of works by old masters and renowned modern painters were crafted by a South Korean gallery. Exhibition organizer Wang Hui said it took two years of preparation and a hefty investment to bring the works to China.
