On a side note, I really hate Tumblr’s lack of photoset options.
Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish.
THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS
Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.
Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.
this continues to be the best reply to a criticizing comment on this site
why wont anyone respect my opppppppinnooon??????????
One of these women is despised and hated for being awkward.
The other is applauded and worshipped for the exact same reason.
I know other factors come into play.
But something isn’t right there.
im laughing so hard what point are they trying to make?
that Kristen Stewart isn’t very “ladylike” and personable in an unfriendly way and gets heavily criticized especially because of her portrayal of a poorly written character and Jennifer Lawrence is quirky and silly but also in a very “unladylike” manner and she’s revered and adored and that celebrity culture demeans women who don’t want to be viewed as friendly and polite? what point are you trying to make
i honestly thought this was about their hair colour ill bow out now
if kristen stewart could act her way out of a paper bag it wouldn’t be an issue, trust
Love this comic :)
I looked up “complaining” on www.stockphoto.com and was not disappointed

Made this in an exercise of ‘Actually start something and then finish it, God dammit’.
