Leonardo da Vinci's Galactic Vision
Mona Lisa connects star secrets to sacred land-survey line in Rome

Lund's astronomical interpretation is strongly supported on the right side of the painting by a lakeside mountain that apparently represents the small constellation that marks the top of the galaxy's perpendicular axis, or "North Galactic Pole." The constellation, Coma Berenices, also forms the small grouping of stars seen as the tail of Leo the Lion. Lund believes the "lion's tail" was adopted by 'Leo'-nardo to use as his own celestial signature for the painting. Amazingly, Da Vinci apparently depicted the two essential coordinates that define both the galaxy's center, and the polar orientation it revolves around.
In 2011, Lund demonstrated in Rome that the Mona Lisa depicted a precise land-survey line that stretched 29.5 kilometers from the Vatican to Lake Nemi. It now appears that the painting also depicted a second survey line that stretched from the very center of our galaxy. This followed the Hermetic philosophical maxim: "As Above, So Below," connecting the stars and their patterns directly with Earth and its geography.
On December 19, 2013, Lund presented a dramatic visualization showing that the Mona Lisa was “frozen in time” at sunrise on Christmas morning in Rome, 1500 AD, marking the most symbolic moment during the Catholic Church's Grand Jubilee that year. The endpoints of the land-survey, and the polar galactic line, joined precisely at the star Kaus Australis with the first light of dawn on Dec. 25th. “Time, space, geometry, and geography, prove that Da Vinci joined the celestial and terrestrial realms at a single point on the Mona Lisa,” says Lund.
A revised and updated version of Scott Lund's book, “The Mona Lisa Code,” is now offered as a Scholar's Edition for academic review.
