Mona Lisas from Around the World

Mona Lisa is a world-famous portrait painted by Leonardo Da Vinci in the 16th Century during the Renaissance period. On the face of it, it is a simple portrait but it has certain qualities that raise it far above the standard painting: a. the enigmatic facial expression b. The monumentality of the composition and c. the mysterious background landscape.
That is all well and good, but have you ever wondered how good ol’ Mona Mona would look if she were born in a country other than Italy?
I’m sure you have ;) .
