Man recreates ‘Mona Lisa’ in backyard snow

(by Ben Hooper, UPI, Feb. 14) — A Toronto man turned winter weather into high art when he used a shovel to turn his backyard ice rink into a recreation of Da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa.”

Robert Greenfield posted a timelapse video to YouTube (see below) showing how he used a shovel after recent heavy snowfall to etch the “Snowna Lisa” into the snow that fell on his backyard ice rink.

The completed artwork bears a striking resemblance to Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous painting, the “Mona Lisa.”

“This is not exactly a masterpiece, but I present the Snowna Lisa! Oh, you think that’s bad? Wait till I tell you it should be hanging in the Igloouvre,” Greenfield wrote in a Facebook post.
