Mona Lisa
The Mona Lisa uses a pointillist style that I first saw in Roy Cook’s Aayla Secura Pointillist Mosaic winner of best mosaic at Brickfest 2006. My method differs slightly from Roy’s. Roy attached his 1x1 round plates to Technic bricks. I attached my 1x1 round plates directly to a plate beneath. Roy’s method allows more of the underneath color to “bleed” through than my method. My method allows the color to “bleed” more symmetrically. The pointillist style allowed me to make my mosaic nearly the same size as the actual picture (21 inches by 30 inches) A mosaic on the Mona Lisa has been done a number of times before (Harshbarger (2000) and Nguyen (2006) are two that I know of).

Very realistic! The eyes "follow" you when you look at it from different angles, just like the original painting.

Definately a LEGO masterpiece. It's interesting that I was just looking at Mutant Ninja Turtles in LEGO, and now this... Leonardo is everywhere! Great work.

No need for long commentary about how you got every part of it completely accurate, your work can defintely stand by itself.

Arthur, your work never ceases to amaze me! Great job helping pioneer this technique; I think this piece does a stellar job proving that this technique is a viable way to create great LEGO mosaics. But while a technique is just a technique, your design and colorization of the image itself is really excellent and is the true star of the show. You've done an amazing job!

Wow, really nicely done, Arthur! I've never had the patience to try one of these (and perhaps a little too close to what I do for a living), but it looks pretty darn complex. Hat's off to ya on a great portrait!!! Ah, but with your building skills, you probably did this in your sleep...Okay, so how about a real challenge...maybe Gericault's "Raft of the Medusa!"

Leonardo would be proud. I'm not going to sully this piece of art with witty commentary. Thanks for sharing. ~ chris.
