And now an inventive use of technology transforms one of Western Civilization's most iconic images. Through some Photoshop-assisted sleight of hand, the artist Mike Ruiz has removed Mona Lisa from the Mona Lisa. Here's how Ruiz describes his altering of Leonardo da Vinci's most famous portrait:
The Mona Lisa with the lady selected then put through Content-Aware Fill (a Photoshop CS5 tool that automatically generates content based on the existing surrounding content of the image and fills in selected area). The resulting image is a potential landscape as interpreted by the software. The image was sent to an painting manufacturer in China where an oil painting was produced.
