Leonardo: Virtual reality exposes Mona Lisa's secrets

As part of a highly-anticipated exhibition to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death, visitors to the Louvre in Paris will be treated to a virtual reality experience that promises to expose the artists's secrets.

The creators of Mona Lisa: Beyond the Glass say the exhibit brings to life the story behind one of the Renaissance-era artist's most famous paintings by revealing things otherwise invisible to the naked eye.

The Leonardo da Vinci exhibition at the Louvre will run until 24 February 2020.
