A stroke of genius.

You mightn’t have thought historic artworks, like Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Diptych and Frida Kahlo’s Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird, could get any better. You were wrong.

Italian artist Stefano Bolcato has re-imagined these works with one major difference: he’s put LEGO figurines in the place of people.

It’s a stroke of genius and we’re surprised someone didn’t think of it sooner.

Check out the images above.
