A humorous painting by artist Elizabeth Sherry transforms items from the iconic Mario video game series into a still life. The pseudo-classical painting features power ups and inanimate objects used in the video game arranged into a familiar scene. Each object is laid out like a traditional still life. However, familiar items are replaced by fantastical Mario memorabilia.

Sherry's game-based painting was created as a tribute to the Mario series. The artist was inspired to create the painting after noticing the abundance of flowers and vegetables used in the iconic video game. As a result, every item that Sherry used in the painting was featured in a Mario game. Items such as mushrooms, fire flowers and turtle shells were painted into the serene painting.
