My first photo-manipulation! Homage to the dada artists who ridiculed the Nazis in the 1930s.

Not many people know that the Nazis actually stole the Mona Lisa from the Louvre, during WW2. It was among the art treasures they hid in a mine shaft in Austria. Were it not for some heroic Anti-Nazi Austrian SOE agents, who secured the site (after being dropped in the area by the British) the Nazi zealots would have blown up the mine shaft and its priceless contents, with a bomb that had been brought there especially. Other renaissance treasures stashed in crates there included a Van Eyck altarpiece, several Titians and a Botticelli. That the Mona Lisa was also there was hushed up for a long time after the war, probably to avoid embarrassing the French.
