Scientists hope to use DNA to identify the woman who inspired Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. It’s widely believed that the wife of a silk merchant, Lisa Gherardini, was the model featured in the famous work.

Researchers recently exhumed that they believe to be Gherardini’s remains from a tomb in Florence.
