Mona Lisa’s skull unearthed

The idea is to reconstruct her face using her real skull and compare it to the painting to see if they match.
The skull was found 1.5 metres under the convent’s original floor near fragments of human ribs and vertebrae, according to excavation officials.
Researchers will now compare DNA from the skull to bones of two children buried nearby who are believed to be Gherardini’s kids.
