The Sistine Chapel literally took my breath away. Van Gogh’s Starry Night made me all warm and fuzzy inside. The Mona Lisa? I was sort of underwhelmed. But what the hell do I know about art? Probably not much, since I think that this rendition is pretty snazzy. A Chinese jewelry collector, who probably had more money that he could spend, has created a replica of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” with 100,000 carats of jewelry. Many artists have tried to replicate da Vinci’s masterpiece out all kinds of unusual materials, from coffee cups, to pieces of toast and even motherboard components, but no one has ever create an extravagant a replica like this jewel Mona Lisa. The name of the artist is unknown, but this bedazzled replica of the Mona Lisa is currently on display in a shopping mall in Shenyang City, China.
