LOS ANGELES - Sept. 13, 2014 - PRLog -- Visionary historian Scott Lund has released additional evidence to support his Mona Lisa Code (sm). Incredibly, Da Vinci's last three paintings have been found to form a complete solar grouping that represented the solstices and equinoxes during the Catholic church's Grand Jubilee celebration of 1500 AD.

In the last few years of his life, Da Vinci surrounded himself with just three paintings: The “Mona Lisa,” “The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne,” and “Saint John the Baptist.” Previously, Lund revealed that the “Mona Lisa” depicted Christmas sunrise during the Church's jubilee year, with a land survey line in Rome becoming momentarily joined to a “celestial” survey line at the instant the Sun appeared. Lund says the other two paintings support his original conclusion, and portrayed the Autumn equinox and Summer solstice of 1500 AD, respectively. He has identified remarkably accurate alignments of the paintings with the constellations Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Perseus, indicating that their composition was entirely derived from the shapes of the stars in the sky.

Lund says that Da Vinci's three works were consistent with the idea that paintings could be “talismans” capable of pulling down the power of the planets and stars for magical purposes. The idea that paintings could be used as magic talismans was promoted by Marsilio Ficino at his Academy of Plato in Florence, and was highly influenced by the “Picatrix” – a medieval book of “black” magic that detailed the procedures for creating them. According to the Picatrix, such talismans accomplished their power through “violence,” much like poison.

“Now we know why it took Da Vinci so long to paint the Mona Lisa and the other two paintings. According to the Picatrix, he could only work on them when there were 'favorable aspects' with the planets. Following the dictates of the book in trying to capture the 'soul' of the Sun, Da Vinci would presumably have dressed in gold silk, burned incense of ambergris, and talked to his paintings with 'sound intention',” says Lund.

According to Wikipedia, Da Vinci was a "painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer." Lund says: "What they didn't say was that Da Vinci was an astronomer, and unquestionably the greatest one of his age. The world will now see an entirely new Da Vinci, who was neither artist, nor painter, so much as Hermetic wizard.” He adds that Da Vinci viewed the three paintings from his deathbed as he contemplated the immortality of his soul.

Scott Lund's recent discoveries have been published in his new book: The Mona Lisa Code: Preliminary Scholar's Edition (ISBN: 978-1-4951-2788-5), which he is making available to historians and art experts for critique and commentary. This fall, Lund will be hosting an event in Los Angeles, where the public and news media will have the opportunity to view detailed illustrations of his new discoveries. He says: “This is a game-changer that goes beyond any reasonable doubt. The evidence is too strong to be refuted.”
