— Museum Exhibit, Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The Famous Painting is a painting that can be bought in all games in the Animal Crossing series. Despite being available in Crazy Redd's in both Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing: City Folk, it is a spotlight product in Animal Crossing: Wild World, and is therefore considerably cheaper. The Famous Painting is a copy of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, painted from circa. 1503 to 1506. It is a widely known and appreciated work of art, hence the title it is given in the Animal Crossing series.

In City Folk, it is one of the few privileged paintings to be displayed in the rear room, where it is sheltered behind a protective fence.


In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, if the Mona Lisa's left hand is grasping her right, rather than her right hand grasping her left, then the painting is a forgery.
