I've done similar things in my art history class. I've been collecting
parodies of famous works of art for a number of years--a lot of teachers
and our librarian bring them in for us to use. There are lots of Mona
and AG, plus Michelangelo's David (usually covered, or showing him from
the waist up), and Rodin's Thinker, among others.
