Mystery Mural: Mona Lisa
The photo above, dated September, 2015, is a mystery to me. I noticed it by chance in one of my files of iPhone photos. I think one of my considerate friends or relatives, who help me with my collection of Mona Lisa parodies, must have sent it to me. Whoever you are -- if you let me know, I'll add a thank you here!
Diligent google searching yielded this: the scene is from Umberto's Clam House in Manhattan's Little Italy. It's a famous tourist spot for seafood now, but also notorious because in 1972, it was the scene of a high-profile mob killing. Umberto's website includes another view of the Mona Lisa mural.
I decided to share this amusing photo with Sami's Colorful World, where many bloggers share images of murals from around the world each Sunday. To see the collected murals check this website:
Like every post at my blog, maefood dot blogspot dot com, I wrote this post, and if you see it at some other blog, you are seeing a pirate version that's stolen from me!
