Mona Lisa Mosaic Made of Burnt Toast in Matera

Written By: -


With her Mona Lisa mosaic made of burnt toast, English artist Laura Hadland aroused the interest and curiosity of the inhabitants of Matera, an old town in southern Italy famous for its beautiful cave-houses. Ms. Hadland -best known for another similar work which she created as a birthday present for her mother in law- made this rather bizarre replica of Mona lisa, one of Leonardo’s most famous paintings (it took him a bit over 10 years) last Easter; all the 1,o80 pieces of toast used here come from the Consorzio di Tutela del pane di Matera (IGP).
