A group of Italian scientists and art historians are appealing to the French government to exhume the skull of the great Leonardo Da Vinci to prove a theory about his greatest work, The Mona Lisa.

The team believes that the painting may actually be a self-portrait of the artist in disguise, based on its similarities to a 1515 self-portrait, da Vinci’s homosexuality and fascination with riddles.

By examining the artist’s skull, the scientists and historians look to “rebuild Leonardo’s face and compare it with the Mona Lisa” and prove that the famed portrait is in fact of da Vinci himself.
