Original artwork description:

This work is a one-of-a-kind, no copies will be made. "The Mona Lisa Smile 2020" is hidden in uncertainty under a medical mask. The world's facing unprecedented challenge, but what's certain, as it was many times before, the world will manage, surpass, and mature to a new brighter future!

The original string art technique that created this stunning piece involves wrapping several kilometers of a continuous mono-thread around an evenly spaced circle of 200 aluminum pins. The thread cross, re-cross, and crisscross a circular area above the flat wooden board. The image within the circle is achieved by the painstaking and complex choice of connections between the pins. After the first 30 connections that make up the image, the number of possible knitting variants exceeds the number of atoms in the Universe! So it’s simply impossible to reproduce this artwork by guesswork or to untangle it with your mind...

Just think, by what kind of magic does the same string that produces only random noise around the image suddenly condense and accurately repeats the complex shape? That's quite amazing... As if by the creator's plan, the string meticulously draws the figure in the air, and from this unifying beginning, the entire piece is interconnected... even the smallest element is an inseparable part of the whole, which brings up deep symbolic meaning to the artwork.
