Archeologists works next to one of the two skeletons, presumably female, that have been discovered during the hunt of the remains of the alleged model for Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa -- Mona Lisa Gherardini. The remains, one a complete skeleton and the other fragmented, were found in the same grave, in the basement of the former convent of St. Ursula in Florence, where it is thought that the lady was buried after his death in 1542. With these new discoveries, the number skeletons exhumed during the excavations rose to seven.
