Mona Lisa Smile
Mona Lisa's smile analyzed by emotion-recognition software. Turns out she was 83 percent happy, 9 percent disgusted, 6 percent fearful and 2 percent angry.

(UPDATE: BoF has something to say about this experiment)

how did u figure out the percentages of each of her moods by looking at the picture?????
and ive been told its a realistic picture but that wont tell you her moods

You just cant say what her mood is. Just cuz the painting is realistic and all, doesnt mean you can judge whether she is happy or not.

Sometimes you can tell a persons feelings buy there facial experssion .
but the mona lisa smile or smirk or watever is very hard to tell even if you cover her eyes and try to tell by her eyes.

Maybe she was fourced to smile maybe it was an on-the-moment thing you never know.

That is why this artist is so famous because his got everyone thinking"what is she doing? how does she feel? is she happy or is she sad?"
