Mona Lisa Code reveals painting 'Frozen in Time' at Sunrise on December 25th, 1500 AD, in Rome

Leonardo da Vinci's Christmas Surprise! Mona Lisa frozen in time at Sunrise on December 25, 1500 AD, in Rome.

The moment in time captured by Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa has been identified. Visionary historian Scott Lund has released amazing visual proof that the painting portrays the soft light of sunrise on Christmas morning in Rome, 1500 AD. “Daybreak on December 25th marked the most symbolic point in time during the Grand Jubilee that celebrated the renewal of the Catholic Church after 15 centuries,” says Lund. “It was that instant which was frozen forever on the Mona Lisa.”

“I get to play Santa Claus to the world by presenting my most conclusive evidence of the Mona Lisa Code,” says Lund. “Future history will regard Christmas, 2013, as the day when this fantastic secret was clearly revealed.”

“The exact time and setting has now been established for Da Vinci's mysterious masterpiece,” says Lund. “At first light on Christmas morn, 1500 AD, the Mona Lisa female figure faced the Southeast horizon of Rome from atop the Janiculum–the highest hill in the city.” There is where the Tempietto stands–the small elegant chapel built by Da Vinci's good friend, Donato Bramante. Lund asserts that Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, and Bramante's Tempietto, were sister projects meant to jointly commemorate the Catholic Church's Grand Jubilee of 1500 AD, but also to secretly express profound religious concepts that would have been viewed as heretical. Lund has previously presented self-evident visual proof that the Mona Lisa personifies the Tempietto's architecture.

In 2011, Lund demonstrated in Rome that the painting's landscape actually depicted a precise land-survey line stretching 29.5 kilometers from the Vatican–through the site of the Tempietto–and ending at a former pagan cult site of the Roman Goddess Diana at Lake Nemi. Now, Lund has additionally shown that the position of the night sky, just before the moment of dawn on Christmas Day, indicates a second incredible survey line of the stars! “Da Vinci's celestial survey line connects to his terrestrial one precisely at daybreak on Christmas, and that adds tremendous mathematical and corroborative proof to what I have been saying for over three years,” says Lund.

On December 15, Lund revealed that the peculiar shape of the mountain ridge, seen on the left-side landscape, represented the “Dark Rift” area of the Milky Way, located at the center of the galaxy. On the other side of the painting, he discovered a mountain shaped like the small constellation seen at the top of the galaxy's “north pole.” Amazingly, Da Vinci had painted the two essential coordinates that defined the galaxy's center and the polar orientation it revolves around. "It now appears that the Mona Lisa has a second survey line that stretches from the very center of our galaxy to the end of its northern 'pole',” says Lund. “This follows the Hermetic philosophical maxim: 'As Above, So Below', connecting the stars and their patterns directly with Earth and its geography.”

Of particular interest is the star Kaus Australis–the brightest in the constellation of Sagittarius, and very close to the “Dark Rift.” Kaus Australis is the star that heralded the Southeast compass-point of the horizon in conjunction with the rising of the sun that special Christmas morning. Disguised as a rock formation on the left side of the Mona Lisa, Lund identifies the figure of St. Christopher entering the water of Lake Nemi at the precise endpoint of the land-survey line extending from the Vatican. It is the head of the Christ Child, seen on the shoulder of St. Christopher, that matches up perfectly with the star Kaus Australis. “We see Da Vinci using Kaus Australis as a 'holy star' to mystically symbolize Christmas, the Sun, the Christ Child, and the union between the Celestial and Terrestrial realms,” says Lund.

Lund deduces that the “Dark Rift,” in the midst of the thickest section of the Milky Way's stars, symbolizes Lake Nemi surrounded by the sacred forest of the Goddess Diana. Coma Berenices, the star constellation at the top of the galactic pole, symbolizes the supremacy of the Vatican centered above the Universe.
