Banksy's Mona Lisa Rocketlauncher first appeared in the Soho district of West London. A video briefly surfaced online where Banksy appears to be at work on this piece. The video shows the process of whitewashing, and the person on camera places an image of Mona Lisa holding a bazooka gun on the wall. The setting of the video appears to be Noel Street.
The work remains true to Mona Lisa's lackluster expression, but she has a rocketlauncher placed on her shoulder and wears a headset. Her hands are no longer folded in the traditional manner, instead bracing the weight of the weapon she holds. A bit of a comical and less-thought provoking piece, Mona Lisa is seen calm and collected even in the face of war.
