One of the most expensive paintings from the 16th century, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa now has the priciest bejeweled replica consisting of 100,000 carats of jewelry.

A Chinese jewelry collector spent the last 30 years collecting all the necessary precious gem stones and then spent the last five years collaborating with several European craftsmen to complete this extravagant masterpiece of painting and jewelry.

Where is this bedazzled Mona Lisa displayed?

No, not in an art gallery. In a shopping mall in Shenyang City, China.
