Art historians have found a real life da Vinci code: tiny letters painted into the eyes of the enigmatic Mona Lisa.

“To the naked eye the symbols are not visible but with a magnifying glass they can clearly be seen,” said Silvano Vinceti, president of the Committee.

In the right eye appear to be the letters LV which could well stand for his name Leonardo Da Vinci while in the left eye there are also symbols but they are not as defined.

He said: “It is very difficult to make them out clearly but they appear to be the letters CE or it could be the letter B – you have to remember the picture is almost 500 years old so it is not as sharp and clear as when first painted.

“While in the arch of the bridge in the background the number 72 can be seen, or it could be an L and the number 2.”
