See Mona in the flesh!

We’ve all heard of Mona Lisa right? Her real name being Lisa Gherardini. Some of you may have already seen her, obviously not in the flesh, as she’s been dead for over 400 years, the plague allegedly… “Damn fleas”! To us, the Mona Lisa only exists as a painting in the Louvre Museum. She’s seen by more than 20,000 people each day, so in order to keep her in pristine condition and away from poking fingers, the Mona Lisa is kept permanently in a protective casing due to her fragility.

Mona Lisa VR experience

With major advances in 3D rendering, faster processing power, along with rapidly evolving virtual reality (VR) technologies and a bunch of clever software,  the Musée du Louvre in Paris (home of Mona Lisa) and HTC VIVE Arts in partnership, and produced by leading VR studio Emissive has recreated Mona Lisa as a VR experience “Mona Lisa: Beyond the Glass”. It is said that the virtual reality experience is an integral part of the museum’s leading light Leonardo da Vinci exhibition, which commemorates the 500th anniversary of da Vinci’s death in France.

HTC VIVE Arts

Beyond the Glass reveals the latest scientific research on da Vinci’s artistic innovation and his painting techniques and processes through exceptional visualisation in virtual reality, bringing them to life. The experience is intended to complement and enhance visitors’ engagement with da Vinci and the masterpieces that are on display through creative storytelling that reveals more than the eye can see.
