Funny Paintings on Thumb

Ditology:::The 'Ditology' project aims to look at our sense of identity and how we use disguises - particularly when we leave a 'digital fingerprint' online.
The inventive Italian, from Bologna, has produced versions of everyone from Dalai Lama and Jesus to Colonel Gaddafi and Hitler. He works under the pseudonym Dito Von Tease, in reference to the burlesque dancer Dita and because 'il dito' means 'the finger'. It all started three years ago, when Von Tease, 33, was looking for an original avatar to use as his profile picture on Facebook.

Von Tease said he chose a finger as a disguise because he was not keen to reveal his identity.
He said: 'In Italian someone could say I wanted to "hide myself behind my finger [trans: nascondermi dietro un dito]" - it's a metaphor to indicate a not-very-effective hiding place.
'I used this metaphor to say we all try to hide ourselves behind an image of us we create. That's my finger, the changing masks everybody wears in playing life... especially famous people.'
