Lol!

Yes, I should have said, Leonardo da Vinci was played by the amazing Jack Greene, Time Traveller: http://www.barometerworld.co.uk/jack/Default.htm

Leonardo was voiced by the Renaissance musician Dante Ferarra: http://www.danteferrara.co.uk/

Mona Lisa was played by Lydia Staniaszek (as a break from writing up her neuro-science PHD thesis)!

It was filmed and directed by Nick Loven: http://www.crowseye.co.uk/ (web site under developent).

We have now done something similar to the already much parodied 1930's painting American Gothic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvf2hahw-Ig

Superb! An iconic image for me, so well-done. I've sent the link to a bunch of friends in the US.

Really video of Mona lisa recreation is very good especially first and secong one while painter told her for more smile. In the first she can't hear the painter because of headphone but in other she gave a big smile. Really very funny.
