Pictures 3 and 4, the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci and the huge crowd around it, the subject now definitely established as Lisa
   Gherardini, the wife of a wealthy Florentine merchant who commissioned da Vinci to create the portrait. Don't even think of arguing
   it is someone else, as it was recently confirmed by a Canadian with lasers. Not Dan Brown.

Picture 9 is some very intricate ceiling carvings
