Artist’s Spudtacular “Mona Lisa” Replica Captures The Iconic Masterpiece Weirdly Well.

A two-photo collage. The first shows a close up of a potato that has a face drawn on it. The second is a view of someone touching up a "Mona Lisa" replica made out of potatoes, but the view of the art is obscured by the person's arm.

Like beauty, art is in the eye of the beholder. And, in this case, it’s also in the eye of a few cleverly placed potatoes. Let me explain: Huylson shares artistic creations of all kinds on social media, including a replica of the “Mona Lisa.” This particularly clever work of art has especially captured everyone’s attention. Having trouble picturing it? Makes sense.

Lots of time, effort, and details went into the creation of this masterpiece. First, Huylson drew the face from the “Mona Lisa” onto a single spud. From there, he used paint to give her skin and eyes the right colors. With her face made, he moved on to create the rest of her body. For her clothes, he used lettuce — because every starch needs a vegetable.

By the time Huylson is finished with his replica, it’s hard to believe it’s made entirely of potatoes (with some lettuce, of course). It’s no wonder he’s garnered over a million followers on his social media accounts!
