Using 10,000 different pieces of pasta including fusilli, macaroni and lasagna, British culinary artist Prudence Emma Staite created this modern version of Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, the Mona Lisa.

Dubbed the Mona Lasagne, the piece will apparently last for 20 years due to the long shelf life of dry pasta.

The artwork was commissioned by Pizza Hut to mark its rebranding as Pasta Hut, and will be on display in one of London's Pasta Hut restaurants.

Implications - The Mona Lasagne certainly proves that you can sometimes have a little bit of fun with your food. This pasta-based art work is always a crowd pleaser as many people in their youth were told not to play with their food -- and now they can indulge!
