UK-based artist Jane Perkins recreates classical artworks and photo portraits using thousands of found objects from LEGO bricks to buttons, beads, shells and plastic toys.

All components retain their original colour and are carefully chosen to match the palette of the work or photo.

The art is in their meticulous placement.
