Greenwich Village Regional Message Board
how do you like Greenwich Village?
It's absolutely lovely.
Like, it's cool to welcome the Mona Lisa to the Village. Your beauty elevates us all. We'll keep your secret. Stay as long as you like, be at home.
We touch mystery
when we contemplate beauty.
Fair Mona Lisa,
you hang around the Village
and our bliss is transcendent.
And espresso for everyone!
Thank you for your warm welcome, and your kind words, your discretion and for the poem!
I do like hanging on walls, or lean on them. I like sitting on the floor as well, and feel the vibration of people walking around, and I am getting good vibrations here.
The Louvre haven't noticed I'm missing, my understudy is sitting in as she wants all the fame whereas I want out of the limelight and explore. The experts are none the wiser so we are both laughing.
Loving the espresso.
Remind me to tell you the story about how I lost my eyebrows.
how did you lose your eyebrows?
Oh okay, well, it was when I had my first sitting with Leonardo and he could see I was a little nervous, and he said "Madam Lisa, may I suggest something to calm the nerves?"
And I was like "okay" and he got a stash of hemp he kept hidden underneath the floorboards, which he said he usually kept for "Artistic purposes".
When it came to my turn to puff, puff, pass, I was nearly knocked out.
Well, Leo could see I was tired and asked if I wanted a nap and have my sitting later, so I laid down in a spare room I had, and went to sleep.
I woke up and Leo was standing there with a mirror.
"I knew it!" he said. "I knew you would look better without eyebrows!" and he explained how when I was sleeping, he had taken the scissors and shears to my eyebrows for artistic purposes.
He said that when painting he found eyebrows distracting and they ruined his line of concentration.
So I was like "Oh okay" and then we sat down and he painted me.
They've never grown back, but you have to make these artistic sacrifices.
Wow! So he sacrificed your eyebrows for his art. But you know, even without them, your face is timeless perfection. Maybe the cat knew what he was doing after all.
Thank you very kindly.
Leo was just intense, he said afterwards that my eyebrows were like big crawling furry caterpillars and that I looked like I was frowning all the time, or when I was smiling I looked like an evil mastermind.
There was this nasty rumour that went around that his beard was actually the accumulation of all the eyebrows of every person he had ever painted which he had then dyed and glued to his face for concept art and warmth, but I don't buy into that sort of talk.
He was also an inventor, I really liked the chocolate teapot he invented, but others said it did not hold water.
Yes he invented a teapot out of chocolate.
I thought it was wonderful personally as the idea was you could eat it after having some tea, however it had it's design flaws particularly with regards to when the water boiled which Leo struggled to overcome.
Leo's critics were at times very cruel, using the phrase "As useful as a chocolate teapot" to describe anyone and anything they considered inept afterwards.
Leo showed them wrong though. He had talent.
