I chose this piece by Vik Muniz because he is one of my favorite artists.  I like his work because he uses a lot of unconventional materials to make his art, such as puzzle pieces, spaghetti, diamonds, and garbage.  This piece is an unusual take on one of the most famous paintings of all time, the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci.  I like that the puzzle pieces are placed on top of each other instead of being pressed down flat and interlocking like a regular puzzle.
