Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen!

We are here to start our Autumn Series of "Что?Где?Когда?" games. Lingvo Online experts will be facing the (virtual) TV audience. Here below you will be given a question, answers on which you should write in the commentary section.

A tiny bit about the rules:

*1 - It is advisable that you do not use any kind of infomation source (including internet and encyclopedia-like books), but your own knowledge, intuition and the help of your friends. Thus it makes the game more interesting.

*2 You will be given 6 hours time to figure out the correct answer. You will be able to see the timemark in the very end of the post (of the note).

*3 For the answers, please, use English.

Good luck and off you go!


Leonardo da Vinci used to look for the models for his paintings really thoroughly. He could be in search of them for months, even for years. However, the two different characters of his he drew using only one model. Please, name these characters.

Question started: 20:30 MSK

Question ends at 02:30 MSK

Mona Lisa and some of the apostles (?)

I read about a hypothesis that Leonardo da Vinci served as a model for his own self- portrait and painting Gioconda (Mona Lisa).

Igor Yurchenkoдобавил комментарий 4 года назад

one of them just ought to be Mona Lisa, and the second one - the Vetruvian Man, maybe? Or one of them helicopter things =)

None of the previously given answers is correct, but Elena was somewhat closer to getting it than the others.Keep going, you`ll nail it!

Igor Yurchenkoдобавил комментарий 4 года назад

then I'll assume that two people at The Last Supper have been painted from one model? Maybe Jesus and Judas - that would be ironic.

Сергей Касаткиндобавил комментарий 4 года назад

Yes, Igor, you're absolutely right! That`s the one!

It is said that Leonardo da Vinci knew that in a man`s soul there`s a struggle between the evil and the good, the dark and the light, the Satan and the God. And when a man chooses to follow one of these two paths, not only he changes inside, he also changes outside. That is why da Vinci used one model to portray both Jesus and Judas.

Igor is almost always right!. :-) If he wins all the challenge. I will be cheering up from here. Night, people! Isn'it toooooooo ironic, dont ya think? It is like raaaaaain ... I just thought about Alanis M. after reading the word ironic. ,-)

Igor Yurchenkoдобавил комментарий 4 года назад

thank you, Сергей. It was just a lucky guess, really. Before I've read Elena's comment I wasn't even sure that Leonardo has painted The Last Supper =)
Thank you, Marissa, for your cheering, it definitely helps!
