Unique discoveries of the Mona Lisa Code:

Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa is the depiction of a single divine soul shared between an expectant mother and her unborn male child. It is not the portrait of a mortal woman, much less the wife of a middle-class silk merchant.

Janus-the Roman two-faced Sun god-was used by Leonardo as a metaphor for the painting's dualism.

The viewer of the Mona Lisaunknowingly views the painting as if he or she was the god Janus looking in opposite directions simultaneously. Tthe two incongruous sides of the landscape depict the two opposing ends of a "land survey" that Leonardo conceived between St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican and the Spring of Egeria at Lake Nemi outside Rome.

The Mona Lisa Code identifies Rome as the right side landscape seen from the vantage point atop its highest hill-the Janiculum-named for the Roman god Janus. The landscape also shows Lake Nemi outside Rome where the cult activities of the goddess Diana had their center.

The Mona Lisawas a "sister project" to the Tempietto di Bramante. The graceful circular domed chapel that sits atop the Janiculum hill and is intersected by Leonardo's land survey. It is considered the preeminent icon or Renaissance architecture, and was constructed by L eonardo's good friend Bramante. The painting and the building were created together to express Christian-Islamic religious doctrine of the "Two Faces of the Soul."

The Tempietto style and proportions are anthropomorphically expressed in the likeness of the Mona Lisa figure.

Leonardo adopted the doctrine of the "two faces of the soul" from medieval Islamic scholar Avicenna, and used the title of Avicenna's book De Animato help conceive the name "Mona Lisa," which is a Latin anagram for ANIMA SOL-meaning "Soul/Sun god." ("Sol" is another name for the Sun god Janus.)

Hidden images discovered by Scott Lund on the left side of the painting include: St. Christopher carrying the Christ Child on his shoulders jumping into Lake Nemi at the site of the spring of Childbirth goddess Egeria; and three owls representing the Triple goddess Diana at her main cult site in Italy. In the fold of the right sleeve of the Mona Lisafigure Lund has identified the double monogram "MM," which stands for Mary Magdalene.

"Maternity" was personified in the painting by fusing the two supreme Biblical mother archetypes of the Old and New Testaments together: Rachel and Mary Magdalene.

The Mona Lisa represents the authentic and historical notion of a Holy Bloodline of the type made popular by Dan Brown's fictional novel: The Da Vinci Code. The premise of a Holy Bloodline is based on the supposition that Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene had a child together that began a bloodline that ultimately spread through all the major royal families of Europe.
