The mystery behind the most enigmatic smile in art _ Leonardo da Vinci's "Mona Lisa" _ just got a little more complicated.

BERLIN (AP) - A researcher has uncovered evidence that apparently confirms the identity of the woman behind the "Mona Lisa's" iconic smile, Germany's University of Heidelberg says.
