** I apologize, in advance, to any of my Russian visitors who come to see this art piece.  Why?  Well, as far as I understand, “Mocha” in the Russian language means, “pee, urine, etc.”  The name of the nail lacquer used for this photograph was actually called, “Black Mocha” (the color of the nail lacquer).  I guess, maybe the cosmetics companies should be more aware of what some words mean in other languages.  However, the word “mocha” is used in a lot of products, e.g., coffee, chocolate, etc.
