Leonardo da Vinci - St. John the Baptist
It's dimension is 69 x 57 cm still I cannot forget when I first say it at Louvre. As happens to some people who doesn't have patience to stay at the queue to see Mona Lisa I browsed around and got mesmerized by this work. Some critics say that his smile is enigmatic but I don't see it this way and find it quite human instead. Critical approach should not interfere at the first time we are in front of something that touch us in a way that time stops and our mind thinks of nothing else but what is in front of us. It's a wonderful feeling and reason is not a good guide during this rare moments.
