Recreating Mona Lisa

Express April 11, 2010


Famous Indian painter Chintamani Biswal's version of the fifteenth century painting depicts Mona Lisa as an Oriya woman wearing a sari and Indian jewellery.

Biswal said he was fascinated by the 'Mona Lisa' while studying art, and has long dreamt of painting it in a traditional Indian look.

He added that he wanted to give a tribute to Leonardo da Vinci on his 558th birth anniversary on April 15.
