There's this weird correlation between LEGOs and life stages. If, at first, your only interest is to chew the blocks and smash them into one another, then later you actually start to build something out of them. After a while, your LEGO bricks are probably thrown into a dark corner of a closet, with only a few sneaky pieces left lying around for you to step on and swear loudly. Some years pass, and you suddenly remember your long-forgotten LEGO bricks, pull them out of the closet and start playing around, right when you thought you're fully grown-up and toys are not for you anymore. These people, though, took their revived love for LEGO creations a step further and re-did classical art pieces accurately only by using LEGOs.

By saying classical art and famous paintings we really are talking about the artworks of the greatest masters and not some doodles from when you were three. Not only is there the Great Wave Off Kanagawa and American Gothic, but also famous works of Gustav Klimt and even a life-size recreation of Michelangelo's David. The creation of which must've taken as much time as making the original statue. The dedication of it! Anyway, this mash-up of everyone's favorite building blocks and unique art is undoubtedly a hit.

Now, if we managed to arouse your curiosity and grab your attention, scroll down below and check these amazing LEGO builds for yourself. Don't forget to comment and vote for the most elaborate one!

Maurits Cornelis Escher's Relativity

Maurits Cornelis Escher's Relativity

Relativity is a lithograph print by the Dutch artist M. C. Escher, first printed in December 1953. The first version of this work was a woodcut earlier that same year. It depicts a world in which the normal laws of gravity do not apply. The architectural structure seems to be the center of an idyllic community, with most of its inhabitants casually going about their ordinary business, such as dining. Windows and doorways are leading to park-like outdoor settings. All of the figures are dressed in identical attire and have featureless bulb-shaped heads. Identical characters such as these can be found in many other Escher works. This is one of Escher’s most famous works and has been used in a variety of ways

Edvard Munch's The Scream

Edvard Munch's The Scream

The Scream is the popular name given to a composition created by Norwegian expressionist artist Edvard Munch in 1893. The original German title given by Munch to his work was Der Schrei der Natur (The Scream of Nature). The agonized face in the painting has become one of the most iconic images of art, seen as symbolizing the anxiety of modern man. Munch recalled that he had been out for a walk at sunset when suddenly the setting sunlight turned the clouds "a blood red." He sensed an ‘infinite scream passing through nature'

Exekias' The Vatican Amphora

Exekias' The Vatican Amphora

The Vatican amphora depicts Achilles and Ajax playing a board game, with both men identified by their names added in the genitive. Ajax and Achilles sit across from each other, looking down at a block situated between them. The board game they are playing, which might be compared to a backgammon or checkers variant, was played with a die. According to the words written next to the two players, Achilles proclaims he has thrown a four, while Ajax has a three. Although the two of them are pictured playing, they are clearly depicted as being on duty, accompanied by their body armor and holding their spears, suggesting that they might head back into battle at any moment. Apart from the selection of this very intimate, seemingly relaxed scene as a symbol for the Trojan War, this vase-painting also showcases the talent of Exekias as an artist: the figures of both Achilles and Ajax are decorated with finely incised details, showing elaborate textile patterns and almost every hair in place. No existing literary source is known to have circulated in the sixth century BC in Athens regarding a narrative involving Ajax and Achilles playing a board game

The Dark Side of the Moon is the eighth studio album by English rock band Pink Floyd, released on 1 March 1973. The record was initially published in a gatefold LP sleeve designed by Hipgnosis and George Hardie. The design was inspired by a photograph of a prism with a color beam projected through it that Thorgerson had found in a photography book. The final design depicts a glass prism dispersing light into color. The picture represents three elements: the band's stage lighting, the album lyrics, and Wright's request for a "simple and bold" design

Venus De Milo

Venus De Milo

The Aphrodite of Milos, generally known as the Venus de Milo, is an ancient Greek statue and one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture. Initially, it was attributed to the sculptor Praxiteles, however, from an inscription that was on its plinth, the statue is thought to be the work of Alexandros of Antioch. Created sometime between 130 and 100 BC, the statue is believed to depict Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty; however, some scholars claim it is the sea-goddess Amphitrite, venerated on Milos. It is a marble sculpture, slightly larger than life-size at 203 cm (6 ft 8 in) high. Part of an arm and the original plinth were lost following its discovery

Painted in June 1889, it depicts the view from the east-facing window of his asylum room at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, just before sunrise, with the addition of an idealized village. Starry Night is one of the most recognized paintings in the history of Western culture. Despite the large number of letters Van Gogh wrote, he said very little about The Starry Night. In a letter to painter Émile Bernard from late November 1889, Van Gogh referred to the painting as a "failure."

Rooms by the Sea, 1951 by Edward Hopper. Hopper first began painting the effects of sunlight as a young art student in Paris, and this interest continued throughout his career. This painting is based on the view out the back door of his studio. Titled in his record book "Rooms by the Sea. Alias The Jumping Off Place," Hopper noted that the second title was perceived by some to have "malign overtones" and he thus deleted it. While the view from the studio suggested the composition of Rooms by the Sea, the image is more an evocative metaphor of silence and solitude than the transcription of an actual scene

Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man

Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man

The Vitruvian Man is a drawing made by the Italian polymath Leonardo da Vinci around 1490. It is accompanied by notes based on the work of the architect Vitruvius. The illustration, which is in ink on paper, depicts a man in two superimposed positions with his arms and legs apart and inscribed in a circle and square. The drawing and text are sometimes called the Canon of Proportions or, less often, Proportions of Man. Like most works on paper, it is displayed to the public only occasionally. The drawing is based on the correlations of ideal human body proportions with geometry described by the ancient Roman architect Vitruvius in Book III of his Treatise De Architectura. Vitruvius described the human figure as being the principal source of proportion among the classical orders of architecture. Vitruvius determined that the ideal body should be eight heads high. Leonardo's drawing is traditionally named in honor of the architect
