Stripping away all but the conceptual necessary...Boy she certainly has a hot body! At least according to this amendment to the Leonardo Da Vinci painting by Marcel Duchamp...the legitimizing of high-brow graffiti...changing the original context of the work, removing it from the museum and placing it in the public...this copy, makes the piece available, another copy can be distributed, again and again...accessible and for everyone...

This conceptual piece utilizes the Mona Lisa as a vehicle to convey a base emotion...a comment on the physicality of a beautiful woman...LHROQ...ironically, recently it has been determined she is probably would Duchamp feel about this new insight and its impact on his conceptual piece? Would he be pleased? Disappointed?
