Famous paintings are famous for a reason. Images like the Mona Lisa represented a generation and to this day, they still confound the masses. These recreations remain true to the originals with an added twist.

Jane Perkins wasn't always an artist but you couldn't tell with these famous painting recreations. Rather than doing it the traditional way, Jane decided that it would be a bit more fun to jazz it up with different textile materials. These recreations use beads and buttons in an intricately placed arrangement to mirror the originals.

Considering how difficult the originals are to re-create with actual paint and their other original material, this is a marvel of modern art. The recreations are precise while also being undoubtedly original.
