LEGO has been used to recreate every scene in history, reinventing real-life events and places into bricktastic beauty. Italian photographer Marco Pece has hopped on the LEGO bandwagon but has decided to delve into the realm of iconic artwork.

Marco Pece replicates classic masterpieces in LEGO. There’s ‘Mona Lisa’ by Leonardo da Vinci, the ‘Marilyn Monroe’ pop art series from Andy Warhol and ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ by Johannes Vermeer—all in familiar LEGO form. My favorite, however, is the reinvented ‘American Gothic’ by Grant Wood. Stats for Classic Artwork in LEGO Trending: Older & Average
