On the sculpted heels of the David with an assault rifle “Work of Art,” comes another “Italian Masterpiece” – this time the gun-maker is Beretta and the artwork
shamelessly defaced for profit … er, the … well, Italian Masterpiece “improved” is Leonardo’s Mona Lisa.
We have not heard of any “blow back” from the Italian Cultural Elite – the folks that were so offended by the modified David. But we expect that they aren’t too pleased here as well. We’re getting a bit blown away by the banality of it all – it’s getting a little boring, so we won’t add more – not even link to the publicity-hungry gun-makers’ website, so you’ll have to do a bit of research on your own, before you can run out and buy your own “70/90” rifle.
(Thanks Frits, for sending this in!)
