    I don’t know if this is known, but Mona Lisa’s hands are resting on some gray pillar. I feel as if she’s on some high land, in a super view place, some church somewhere. There are two pillar-ic things on the sides, and looks as if there has been a sudden landslide or the left must have been a cliff, parallel to some hill Mona was on. The other part must have been normal ground. The landslide or cliff-height must have been blocked by Mona. Anybody has an idea where this is?
