  1. I will never understand why people take their talent and then create something with such temporary media. This should have been done in tiles as a mosaic that would last for years. What’s with the red & blue patch thingy in the middle? Other than that being there, the artist did a wonderful job replicating the Mona Lisa.

    1. I was more concerned about food wastage when I first saw it. But I guess all artists have their quirks πŸ™‚ The toast is treated with some sort of chemical so the installations last for quite a while. I think the first installation was with Mona Lisa holding a ice cream cone, and after a while, they changed it to a glass of wine – that’s the red and blue patch!

  2. Yesterday I viewed a post that featured mosaics created with dyed eggshells. Today, the Mona Lisa in bread! Kudos to the artists for their originality and dedication….that had to have been alot of work….and bread. πŸ™‚

    1. A dyed eggshells installation sounds interesting πŸ™‚ You’re right about the dedication – I can’t imagine the amount of effort that must have gone into making sure the color tones were just right!

  3. Stunning! It made me of think of the sand artwork. Only there for a while but well, that is how life is. We must enjoy and savour it while it last. πŸ™‚

    1. You’re right! It’s a glass of wine. She held a ice cream cone when the piece was first installed. I was thinking it would be quite funny if they made her hold a piece of toast! πŸ˜€

  4. Toast? TOAST?
    Amazing! Most amazing of all, the artist coming to think of it.
    (You think he/she was sitting one morning munching away on a slice and suddenly thought of the Mona LIsa?????)

    1. Yup, toast! πŸ™‚ If I remember correctly, the artist used to run a supermarket chain and he was inspired after seeing the large amount of stale bread go to waste. It’s amazing how moments of inspiration strike.
