Mona Lisa gets animated

Leonardo da Vinci's painting the Mona Lisa has been brought to life in China using cutting edge technology.

At Beijing's Planning Exhibition Hall, Mona Lisa can wave, smile and even answer questions from curious visitors.

The Last Supper, another masterpiece by Leonardo da Vinci, has also been reworked at the exhibition. Every character, from Jesus to his twelve apostles, talks and eats.
