Mona Lisa’s smile has captivated audiences for centuries. Gaze into her eyes and a mysterious smile lights up her face, look at her mouth and it melts away. One would be forgiven for thinking Mona Lisa had a secret she wanted to keep from you, a happy and joyous surprise that gave her a radiating glow.

Someone who wears a mysterious Mona Lisa smile is little lambkin Dominic, whose start to life was all but smile-inspiring.

It wasn’t long before we began to notice the upturned corners of his mouth formed a permanent and enigmatic grin.
