Da Vinci’s World - Through Mirrors - II

Applying a Mirror:
A group of theorists believe that biblical images are hidden within
Leonardo da Vinci's art and can be revealed by applying a mirror to his works,
as shown here.

Here is Da Vinci's work, "The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne,"
before a mirror is applied.

The mirrored image reveals a figure which some say looks like
the Star Wars character, Darth Vader.
Scholars claim it resembles the ancient Old Testament god Jahveh,
who represents the human mind's struggle against vices of the body.

Darth Vader - Again?
A similar face appears on Mona Lisa’s right shoulder when a mirror is placed
on a spot pointed by her finger in the Leonardo da Vinci painting.

Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of Saint John the Baptist.
Scholars applied a mirror, guided by the subject's pointing finger.

Revealed: Tree of Life?
When the mirror is applied, an image of a half-woman and half-man appears.
Scholars believe it might be related to the interpretation Da Vinci made of
the biblical genesis. It may also allude to a painting, which ancient Italian
author, Giorgio Vasari refers to as "Adam and Eve sinning in paradise,"
which has never been seen.

Holy Grail?
When a mirror is applied to reflect the hands of Jesus in the painting,
"The Last Supper," some claim the Holy Grail is revealed.
