For a paltry $25,000, a piece of Renaissance art history could be yours—well, sort of. Think Coffee on Mercer Street is currently selling famed art forger Mark Landis' copy of the Mona Lisa, aptly titled "Fauxna Lisa," which took the artist just 90 minutes to create. Proceeds will go towards the Lauren Rogers Museum of Laurel, Mississippi, who Landis once fooled into accepting one of his fakes. [Bedford + Bowery]
