Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings in the history of art and a jewel of the collection at the Louvre Museum in Paris. So what's it doing in Baltimore? That's the question visitors to the Walters Art Museum have been asking this month as they enter the museum's Renaissance and Baroque galleries and spot the famous lady smiling down at them. Actually, as a wall label notes, it's not the "real" Mona Lisa. Instead, it is a copy -- albeit a very good one -- painted by an unknown French artist probably sometime in the 16th or 17th century.

For years, Leonardo stood under a bush in Mary Kay Pogar's front yard, red cap at a jaunty angle, thick book tucked under an arm. Then, on a summer day in 2005, the gnome disappeared. After a stop at Pogar's lab at a Towson hospital, he jetted around on Air Force One, went ice fishing in Antarctica and trotted along the Great Wall of China -- at least, if all the photos posted in the lab lounge were to be believed. For Pogar, a pathologist's assistant at Greater Baltimore Medical Center, the images were a tip-off that a co-worker filched her gnome.
