If anyone thinks this is painted by Leonardo. You aren't paying attention. look at the horrible bg. the columns. the straight lines. A joke!
edit:: after looking at an even clearer picture from this article
The "expert" says 10 years younger version of mona lisa. This is nonsense. Our faces do not get LONGER with age. This is a "good" copy. the colors and sensitivity of the stroke are off. The background looks like the copyist said, oh screw it, I'll change the background. (if it wasn't painted over even later by another person after the first copyist)
