LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A classic painting is getting a modern interpretation in Louisville with a popular set of toy building blocks.

Lego artist Brian Korte is building a replica of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. It will take him two days to recreate the masterpiece, using 12,000 plastic Lego pieces.

You can watch him work block-by-block on Friday, August 26 in the lobby of the Frazier History Museum through 5 p.m.

The display promotes the museum's exhibit, Work of da Vinci, which runs through September 18.
