(WTVM) - It's the face that inspired thousands of imitations – now archeologists believe they have found the body of the "real" Mona Lisa.
A skeleton has been uncovered beneath a convent in Florence, Italy. Archeologists say the bones belong to Lisa Gheradini -- the model for Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece.
Gherandini became a nun after her husband's death. In 1542, she was buried in the grounds of the convent of Saint Ursula.
Archeologists had to dig through thick concrete before unearthing the remains.
A DNA test should verify her identity.
