The world-famous Mona Lisa was inspired by a digital watercolour painting created in 2023, it can now be revealed.

The enigmatic beauty, seen here for the first time ever, was actually stood before an Atlantean waterfall, before Leonardo da Vinci adapted the image in 1503 to include the now familiar Italian backdrop.

Folk don’t seem to have heard about his time travel machine, which is very strange as the design for it has been there within his sketchings for hundreds of years, although, as he said to me last Wednesday, if his sketch of the melting clocks hadn’t been lost in the timestream, the designs would’ve made more sense.

He said to me ‘the time is right’ for the original Mona Lisa to be revealed, as well as the real name for the subject in the painting. Elsie Clutterbuck, a true Atlantean name if ever there was one, was dazzled by the twinkling lights of the Mayan elevator panel, causing the slightly blurred image of her beautiful enigmatic expression to be catapulted into the mind of the unnamed digital artist. Said unnamed digital artist finished capturing the image on a handheld mobile device, before realising Leonardo was present, but by which time it was too late, inspiration had struck, and the past was history. The Mona Lisa had been created years before its original.

But now the time is now to reveal the true source. Being Italian, Elsie Clutterbuck as a name for the painting didn’t have the right ring to it, so the oil painting, blurring deliberately removed, was instead renamed after a local dignitary.

This, in fact, has worked out fine, as if it had still been named the Elsie Clutterbuck, there’s a big chance it may not have ended up in the Louvre.

    1. Hehehe! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Pleased you enjoyed my factual description of a meeting with a time-travelling friend last week, Sue! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Now about Elsie being in The Last Supper… are you referring to the one leaning to the left next to Jesus in the centre? You’re right… it does look like Mona er Elsie… although it’s actually meant to be the Disciple, John. ๐Ÿ˜Š
      If my friend returns, I shall enquire further for you! ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. It is, isn’t it?
          I got my information from one of those wiki sites, which had a clickable image… maybe I clicked the wrong part of the image. She does look more feminine than I’d imagine John to look, and Mary Magdelene would be a better option, I’d say.
          Or Mona Mary, Or Elsie Magdelene…. oh! The list goes on! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Her day was fine, Diane… it was my mind’s eye that was playing up when I tried to recreate it! Mind you, digital watercolours are always tricky… (not to blame the tools, obviously!) ๐Ÿ˜
