Right away a person can see that there is a lot of geometry (几何) in the Mona Lisa. The face of Mona Lisa is made of many circles and round shapes like balls. Even her smile can be seen as a small part of a large circle. The woman in the painting is sitting on a balcony, and mountains can be seen behind her. Da Vinci loved to study rocks and mountains, so these can be seen over and over again in his other paintings. The woman is sitting with her knees to the side. Her head is turned to look out of the painting. Her hands are held together in front of her. This way of sitting is now used by many artists when they are painting a picture of a man or woman today.

The character “la” in Chinese language means to respect gods and give best wishes to them. In Chinese tradition, such activities were held at the end of a year in the Chinese lunar calendar. There are two important dates in la yue. The first is the Laba Festival on the 8th day of the lunar month. The Laba Festival was a time for the ancient Chinese to hope for the harvest and good luck in the coming year. Laba porridge is the main dish on this day. The other important date is the Kitchen God Worshipping (拜灶神) on the 23rd or 24th day of the month. People offer food to the Kitchen God, who takes charge of things for the whole family. It is said that the god returns to heaven that day to report to the Jade Emperor (the ruler of heaven in Chinese stories) about the family activities over the past year. So people usually offer him delicious dishes so that he will give a good report and the family will have good luck throughout the next year. After this day, people start to sweep up the house and decorate the house with couplets (对 联) and paper-cuttings. Once these things are finished, people will wait for the Spring Festival. 阅读下面短文，完成表格。 La yue On the 8th day 78.
