Mona Lisa mosaic with frame

Name of Model: Mona Lego
Created by: Eric Harshbarger
Found at:
LEGO mosaics are an art form, much like many other forms of large-scale LEGO building. Former professional builder Eric Harshbarger used his "pixelego" software to dither LEGO bricks in just six colors (red, blue, white, black, yellow, and green) so that they would look like the true colors of the Mona Lisa. The frame was made from a variety of plates and more specialized elements. Technic plates were used to create "hangers" for wall mounting. Some cheating (glue) was used to make sure that this did not fall apart after it was sold (as bizarre as glue sounds to most of us, it is normal for professional builders to glue the parts together to prevent breakage).
