An excerpt from the article 38 facts about Mona Lisa
Her hands are resting on the armrest of the chair, which is visible at the bottom of the painting. The sitter is portrayed en trois quarts ("in three quarters") in an oblique, incomplete profile. She has dark hair covered with a transparent veil and dark eyes, above which there are no eyebrows (in the 16th century it was fashionable to depilate the eyebrows to give the impression of a higher forehead, which was desirable at the time).
