A beautiful mind

I recently learned of this site, full of high definition images of famous art, free for personal use.

Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa must be viewed in detail to appreciate. I had always thought the painting wasn't quite as beautiful as claimed, until I saw this. I still think the woman would be considered homely if met in real life. But Da Vinci did not paint a face, he inexplicably captured something far beyond that: a mind in an active moment of health and happiness. It is incredibly beautiful.
