Two more skeletons have been found by investigators searching for the body of Lisa Gherardini, believed to be the inspiration for Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

The two bodies were found under the basement of a former convent in Florence on Tuesday.

The team believes Lisa Gherardini, said to be the model in Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous piece, is buried there.

“If everything goes as planned, we will find Gherardini and with her skull we will be able to reconstruct her face thanks to sophisticated, new technology,” said Silvano Vinceti, the head of the National Committee for The Promotion of Historic and Cultural Heritage.
