Did you know that there is an OPTICAL ILLUSION within the brush-strokes of the MONA LISA?
It is extraordinarily hard to duplicate to this very day.
More extraordinary is that it is connected to VICTOR STANDISH!
Poor Victor Standish.
On his best days, Victor is only PG-13 in his language.
But Alice, the Victorian ghoul, who is the love of his life, insists he prune his "colorful metaphors"
as does Elu, his Apache mentor
(who painfully tweaks his nose when he forgets!)
So in desperation, Victor, veteran of long hours in many libraries,
resorted to using the term "Sfumato!" since it sounded much like what he really wanted to say!
And just what is SFUMATO?
