Renato Casaro is a clever fellow. Born in 1935 in Treviso/Northern Italy, he obviously has a fascination for Hollywood.

Besides the likes of Marylin and King Kong, have a ponder at who is who.

Empire State's construction -the original pic:



Casaro's:



Casaro's Mt Rushmore - pretty obvious personalities/icons:



Botticelli's:



His "Birth of Venus" (I think this is very clever):



His "Creation of Adam"



"Invitation" with Frankenstein even :-c

Here's my shot from left to right - Clark (or Jimmy), Charlie, John, Humphry, Marilyn, Elvis, James, Steve, Mickey (?), and Johnny.

Marylin O.D.ed for The Kennedys' sins.

Monument @ Ground Zero:



On a much lighter note, who on earth is the character on the end in this one?

Kind of looks like Animal from the Muppets, except the head seems too big. Maybe a character from H.R. Puffenstuff or something.

In regard to Animal from the Muppets, the head on the end of the beam isn't furry enough. However in the pic posted below, Animal's head is certainly mammoth:

H. R. Puffinsuff's head is even mega-bigger:



A mystery



BTW In the below re-post of Renato Casaro's painting "Invitation", is that Sal Mineo leaning over talking to James Dean on the very right-hand side with Frankenstein
looking over their shoulders, eavesdropping LOL?
