Sometimes, you don’t have everything needed to recreate a painting exactly. For example, instead of a child, you may have a wonderful dog that you consider your kid.

We’ve seen people do some incredible things with LEGOs. That included this take on an iconic piece by Piet Mondrian. It’s pretty accurate all the way through.

It’s early but this is possibly already our favorite entry on the list. It’s almost uncanny how accurately this was created. The original is famous but we prefer the dog.

Forget “Whistler’s Mother.” Who needs that painting when the brand new take, “Whistler’s Toddler” is available for everyone? The sad face on the kid makes it perfect.

A lot of effort was put forth to recreate the setting. It’s pretty close. The best part has to be that it is a kid as the subject this time around. They’re doing a very good job.

If it wasn’t for the person making sure that the outfits matched, we might not even know this was a recreation. It could’ve just been someone out cold after a long day.

This is another case of finding a painting and figuring out a way to put your own spin on it. This may have been out of necessity, but either way, it works out.

Most people can recognize Banksy’s “Flower Bomber” at first glance. The recreated version keeps some of the look of the original, yet has a modern take.

As much as we appreciate a serious level of dedication, we’re glad this guy didn’t go to the next level. At least, we’re pretty sure he didn’t hack his own ear off for this.

This might be the most interesting take on the list. It’s another of Mondrian’s work but done in the form of a cake. Talk about some expert baking.
