This is called the "Mona Lisa, after Leornardo da Vinci"  from Vik Muniz's Gordian Puzzles collection. I chose this Vik Muniz piece because I like how Muniz took a master piece by a world renowned artist and put his own twist on it. What I like most about Vik Muniz is that he takes simple things, in this case puzzle pieces, and makes them into extraordinary masterpieces. I believe the simplicity of the puzzle pieces adds an ironic twist to the Mona Lisa which known for having hidden meaning.I believe the puzzle pieces could be ironic because its a way of putting together the pieces of the hidden message of the Mona Lisa. I also like how the puzzle pieces adds depths to the Mona Lisa.
