Barbie Art

For the 50th anniversary of Barbie (which was in 2009), Jocelyne Grivaud, a French artist, recreated masterpieces from classic art using the famous face of Barbie herself.  Jocelyne stated that these images are her personal contribution as a Birthday present to her mascot, Barbie.  I think that if anyone out there had a Barbie growing up you can appreciate these works of art, I know that we all did very much so!
