the voice of Mona Lisa

A Japanese acoustics expert has figured what the voice of da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” would sound by using the skills he normally employs solving criminal investigations.

Dr. Matsumi Suzuki measured the figure’s face and hands to estimate her height and create a model of her skull.

"Once we have that, we can create a voice very similar to that of the person concerned,” Suzuki said. "We have recreated the voices of a lot of famous people that were very close to the real thing and have been used in film dubbing."

She sounds like my aunt, if she were Italian.

Anyway, listen to how Mona Lisa would have sounded here.
