Leonardo DaVinci would generally paint two or three versions of a painting over a long period of time – Jaconda was painted 18 years earlier than the Mona Lisa in the Louvre.

EMT was charged with two important tasks. They were first commissioned to design, develop and fabricate a highly technical travel case equipped with GPS tracking and atmospheric pressure control while being single-handedly transportable. They then created a dismantle-able display case that needed to have bulletproof glass, active environmental control and a remote to control temperature, humidity and lighting.
