If there's one thing children have in abundance, it's imagination. Seeking to encourage them to express it in new and original ways, Italian designer Marco Sodano has put together the above Lego recreations of famous masterpieces. Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and Lady with an Ermine sit alongside Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring on the artist's Behance page, under the tagline "all the children are authentic artists." It's a great concept for an advertising campaign for Lego, showing off the toy blocks' hidden versatility and proving that they can indeed create real works of art.
