10 Great Mysteries Hidden in Famous Paintings

As you know, art is not just a source of inspiration but a great mystery too. Artists often add unique little details to their paintings or leave messages that are impossible to notice at first glance. We’ve collected painting masterpieces with surprising secrets. At the end of the video, there’s a bonus waiting for you: one of the strangest hypotheses about the Mona Lisa. Stay with us and learn the things that you never knew before. TIMESTAMPS The wrong ear 0:55 The painting under the painting 1:55 The Night Watch is set at daytime 2:41 The Sistine Chapel’s anatomical code 3:27 The symbol of strength 4:41 Rembrandt’s squint 5:10 Vengeance to lovers 5:55 Prediction of the end of the world 6:36 The world in yellow 7:48 Mozart and the Masons 8:31 Toothless Mona Lisa 9:02 SUMMARY - The discrepancy is explained by the fact that van Gogh used a mirror to create the picture of himself. It seems to be a strange and sharp reaction for van Gogh to cut off his ear. However, the history explains it with the fact that he was deeply in troubles and, apparently, losing his mind at the time of executing the painting. - If you look closely at The Old Guitarist by Pablo Picasso, you can see a ghostly female silhouette behind the man’s head in the top center of the painting. After taking infrared and X-ray images of the canvas, researchers from the Art Institute of Chicago discovered a few other shapes hidden underneath. - The Shooting Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch (better known as The Night Watch) is considered to be one of Rembrandt’s greatest portrait paintings which were executed at the top of his career. The painting depicts the militia fully equipped and readying them to embark on a mission. - The Creation of Adam by Michelangelo contains allusions to anatomy. They argue that the right part of the painting is an anatomically correct image of a huge brain. You can find even the most sophisticated components of the brain, such as the cerebellum, the optic nerve, and the pituitary gland. - The figures of David and Goliath in another fresco of the Sistine Chapel created by Michelangelo form the Hebrew letter gimel, which symbolizes strength in the mystical Kabbalah tradition. It is not a surprise that the shapes on the painting look so powerful, is it? - Margaret Livingstone and Bevil Conway studied Rembrandt’s self-portraits and proved that the painter suffered from stereoblindness. This peculiarity made the artist perceive the world a little differently: he saw reality in 2D instead of 3D. - One of the most famous paintings by Gustav Klimt portrays Adele Bloch-Bauer. It was commissioned by her husband, the sugar baron Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer. He found out that Adele and Klimt had an affair and believed that after hundreds of sketches the painter would come to hate his mistress. - The Italian researcher Sabrina Sforza Galitzia proposed an unusual interpretation of Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper. She says that the artist left a prediction of the end of the world in his painting, which will happen on March 21, 4006. - Almost all the paintings of Vincent van Gogh feature a dominant yellow. Professor Paul Wolf explains that as a side effect of an epilepsy remedy that changes color perception. - There is solid evidence that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was a Mason. Even in his child portrait by Pietro Antonio Lorenzoni, we can see a Masonic symbol: a hidden hand that indicates a hierarchical rank in the secret society. - What is it that made Mona Lisa’s smile so enchanting and captivating? Dentist and art expert Joseph Borkowski carefully studied Leonardo da Vinci’s painting and claims to have unveiled the secret behind La Gioconda’s smile... #mystery #paintings #secretmeaning Subscribe to Bright Side : https://goo.gl/rQTJZz ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brightside/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/brightgram/ 5-Minute Crafts Youtube: https://www.goo.gl/8JVmuC  ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.brightside.me/

Hundreds of stone spheres were found quarried in the foothills of the Talamanca Mountains. Researchers even saw a gigantic ball weighing over 16 tons. -The Roman dodecahedron had 12 flat pentagon-shaped faces with a knob protruding on each corner. It might have been a dice, a kid’s toy, a candle holder, a simple decoration, a measuring device on the battlefield, or an astronomical instrument, to name a few. -The Phaistos Disk was made from clay and measures about 6.2 inches in diameter. Experts concluded that it was a prayer to an ancient Minoan goddess. -The formula of Greek fire was a well-guarded state secret for over 7 centuries.

13 Mysterious Details on Everyday Objects Explained

We’re so used to seeing certain everyday objects that we often ignore their little but important details. Yet, some of the most ingenious ideas are often hidden right in plain sight. If you look closely at a tram's overhead lines, you'll see that its contact wires zigzag back and forth instead of going in a straight line. As the tram moves, the arm-like structure called a pantograph attached to its roof slides along the wire, and it wears down evenly. In a standard 52-deck of cards, the King of Hearts looks kind of strange. Some historians argue that the King of Hearts represents Ajax the Great while the Queen of Hearts is Helen of Troy, the most beautiful woman in the world. Ajax was one Helen’s admirers, but when she refused him, he chose to commit suicide by stabbing himself with his own sword. Have you ever noticed how many spikes are in the crown of the Statue of Liberty, and do you know what they represent? There are seven of them, and they represent the seven seas and seven continents of the world. Is your first thought when playing video game consoles to eat the cartridges? Well, apparently that’s what the manufacturers of the cartridges for the Nintendo Switch thought when they decided to coat them with a bitter-tasting non-toxic solution. Most people assume that the tiny hole on the tip of a pen cap is there to even out the pressure so that the pen doesn’t leak. In fact, it’s to save a person who might accidentally swallow the cap and choke on it. Their airway won't be completely obstructed. w:Period-after-opening symbol on a bottle of mouthwash: By I, Trounce, CC BY-SA 3.0 https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=2389837 Animation is created by Bright Side.

To wear it down evenly, the wire isn’t installed strictly along the tram's straight path but in a zigzag instead. -There are 3 theories explaining why the King of Hearts is the only king who appears to be sticking his sword straight into his head. -When the one-, two-, five-, ten-, twenty-, and fifty-pence pieces are laid out together, they form The Royal Coat of Arms of the UK. -To find out how long you can safely use your makeup for, look for the little open jar icon called the PAO (Period After Opening). -The Statue of Liberty has seven spikes in her crown, and they represent the seven seas and seven continents of the world. -Book pages are often printed on large sheets of paper rather than on small individual ones. And if there isn't enough content to fill these sheets, there will be blank pages. -It turns out that each stripe in the toothpaste has different ingredients and purposes: the white part helps whiten your teeth and remove plaque, the blue (or green) gel has antimicrobial and breath-freshening effects. The red part contains crucial elements for healthy gums. -The bitter taste of the cartridges for the Nintendo Switch is meant to make children spit out the cartridge in disgust. -The numbers in the upper right corner of Heinz packets indicate which filling line the packet was filled on. - If a person accidentally swallows the ballpoint pen cap and chokes on it, their airway won't be completely obstructed thank to the little hole in it. -The little bumps on the “F” and “J” on the keyboard help experienced typists that can do their work without looking at the keyboard find “home keys” where the index fingers rest. -Indentations on the bottom of wine and champagne bottles are there to prevent because the bottom and sides of the bottle from cracking when the bottle is being corked. -Tiny holes in airplane windows help balance out the air pressure and prevent the windows from fogging up.

SUMMARY
- The first Star Wars movie was released on May 25, 1977. After that, France officially abolished the use of the guillotine along with the death penalty 1981!
- For example, it's still morning in the US but already the next day in Australia. Anyone who has flown westward over long distances especially gets what we’re saying. You’re travelling for hours and hours but, according to the local time, you arrive to your destination earlier than when you had left!
- The famous American preacher and 1960’s civil rights leader was born in the same year as Anne Frank, a brave little Jewish teenager.
- By the time Cleopatra was born in 69 B.C., the Great Pyramid of Giza had already been around for 2,471 years!
- Herman Melville wrote Moby-Dick in 1851. In his book, the author described a gigantic white whale infamous for its huge size and the destruction it caused to ships. And while such whales have a lifespan of about 50-60 years, the Bowhead whale can live for as long as 200 years and more!
- What happened was a Hawaiian plane took off from Auckland at 12:05AM on January 1, 2018. The passengers on the plane were happy to celebrate the New Year a second time because the plane landed in Honolulu at 10:16AM local time on December 31, 2017.

- The Italy we know today, aka the Italian Republic, was established in 1861, and Charles Lewis Tiffany and John Young opened their first store on Broadway in 1837. But you probably wouldn’t have recognized the company in its early years.
- Let's imagine the Earth’s 4.54 billion-year history is squished into one calendar year. If you crunch the numbers, you’ll see that 1 second would equal 144 years!
- When you hear "10 years ago," you still think of the '90s, not the 2000s, don't you? Isn’t it crazy how so many people are guilty of this? Well, here’s a friendly reminder: it’s been 18 years since the year 2000 (and 28 since 1990!)
