No, the Mona Lisa follows you however, not everywhere with her look
Art & Literature The Mona Lisa effect bestáát indeed, with the Mona Lisa itself. That is, succinctly, the conclusion of two researchers from the University of Bielefeld that nagingen or La Gioconda - as the conscious effect that wants you, indeed, with her eyes follow you wherever you go stand in front of the painting. Not so.

There do what legendeverhalen the round about the world-famous painting by Leonardo DaVinci, which is still in the Louvre in Paris hangs. That's actually a self-portrait. That the hidden references to old literature. That there are secret codes in her eyes. But the most credible is the so called Mona Lisa effect. That means that you as a viewer have the impression that the penetrating gaze of the woman depicted you everywhere follows, from what angle you masterpiece also observed. In other words: you stand there with five next to each other to yawn, then everyone thinks that the Mona Lisa is entitled to him/her looks.

That wanted to be scientists, Gernot Horstmann, and Sebastian Loth heard of a closer look. They asked 24 subjects and showed them the painting on a computer screen, seen from 66 inches away. The participants were not the yes-no question whether they had the feeling that the Mona Lisa to them looked at, because the answer would be based on bias. However, they had the direction of the gaze of La Gioconda indicate with a wooden vouwmeter, horizontally placed between the observer and the object. The computer image of the painting was sometimes zoomed in, sometimes smaller or bigger and sometimes slightly to the left or to the right to move to the participants, each at the same distance remained, sharp. In total, 2,000 of measurements collected.
