When he painted her originally it was
a Colombian girl, aged 12.
His cleaning lady saw it and told him
it resembled the famous one.
and immediately spotting the connection
modified his art and named it
Mona Lisa aged 12.
I think his art and his cheek would have
made Leonardo and Mona Lisa both, smile.

I have seen a couple of this artist’s works and a lot more since reading the prompt at dVerse this afternoon but have to say, I’m not a fan.
I looked up his reason for painting the Mona Lisa his style, and this was the answer I found on several websites: Mona Lisa aged 12 by Botero
