More Info : This Trichocereus hybrid was named after a famous painting by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci. The painting "Mona Lisa" is shown as example below and has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, the most parodied work of art in the world"

Mona Lisa painting by leonardo
( Leonardo da Vinci's "The Mona Lisa" )

The painting, thought to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo, is in oil on a white Lombardy poplar panel, and is believed to have been painted between 1503 and 1506. Leonardo may have continued working on it as late as 1517. It was acquired by King Francis I of France and is now the property of the French Republic, on permanent display at the Louvre Museum in Paris since 1797.
