The Mona Lisa is in headline news yet again... 

"They believe da Vinci used up to 30 layers of paint on his works. But altogether they only add up to a thickness of less than 40 micrometers of paint -- about half the width of a human hair. Details were reported Friday by several news agencies. 


The scientists were able to beam X-ray technology at the paintings without even removing them from the museum wall. 

"This will help us to understand how da Vinci made his materials... the amount of oil that was mixed with pigments, the nature of the organic materials," senior scientist Philippe Walter told CNN. "It will help art historians."



Half the width of a human hair? Why would someone, how could someone paint that detailed? from 500 years ago.

Well I know why, and you will after you read my book.
