Works of art

Following a dream in which Dr. Urs Victor Burki saw himself in a splendid concert hall performing an aesthetic operation on the Mona Lisa to the accompaniment of organ music, he pondered on how to actually alter her face to bring her closer to today’s ideal of beauty. He proceeded as if Mona Lisa was his patient. These considerations gave rise to an original work of art which graces the title page of his book Art and Aesthetic surgery and which aroused lively interest in the media world.

In order to give those who are interested an opportunity to acquire a copy of this art work, Dr. Urs Victor Burki has had a  limited number of serigraphs produced in the original grey/red colours. “Mona Lisa before/after, Six in a Square”, is a variation on the basic theme of “Mona Lisa before/after aesthetic surgery of the face”. This serigraph was produced in the colours gold-silver-grey.
