‘Fake’ Mona Lisa Sold for Over 3 Million U.S. Dollars
Whether you are an art lover or know very little about art, you probably have heard and know about the Mona Lisa. That said, she remains as mysterious as ever it seems because there was a reproduction made about 100 years later that recently sold for over 3 million dollars! Painted by an unknown artist, this piece is known as the “Hekking Mona Lisa” after art collector Hekking who bought it in the 1950s. Although it was known that the “Hekking Mona Lisa” is a reproduction and in fact not the real thing, the bids were still high!
