ANISA OZALP PROJECT: MONA LISA
​​​​​​​Anisa Ozalp's Project: Mona Lisa
Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, I created a three-piece installation art piece in 2022, featuring bust sculptures of the Mona Lisa in bronze, silver, and gold. My artwork aims to capture the enigmatic smile and gaze of the original painting, a phenomenon known as the 'Mona Lisa Effect.' These sculptures are my tribute to the masterpiece, where I've tried to combine traditional art forms with modern techniques. The creation process was intensive, involving meticulous sculpture-making, molding, and shading. My visit to the Louvre Museum in 2023 further ignited my inspiration and enriched my work.
In my interpretation of this famous artwork, I crafted the Mona Lisa sculptures as a tribute to the original painting. It is common for artists to draw inspiration from renowned works of art and create their own versions or interpretations, which is precisely what I aimed to do with my sculptures. They represent my artistic interpretation of the Mona Lisa, manifested through my style and creative vision. I completed this project in 2022.
The Story and Facts of the Mona Lisa
The Mona Lisa was created by Italian artist, inventor, and writer Leonardo da Vinci. The artist completed the piece in 1506, worth ~$1 billion today. 
Mona Lisa effect: Through her enchanting look and smile, her arms folded as she gazes at the viewer and appears to smile, an aesthetic attribute that has proven particularly eye-catching softly. She looks about 15 degrees to your right, more likely at your ear than your eyes. Her eyes follow you, making her an engaged participant when being viewed rather than remaining an object to look upon.
