Woman has Mona Lisa mowed into her lawn

LONDON, July 24 (UPI) -- A British art-lover said she hired a 3D art expert to create an all-grass reproduction of the Mona Lisa on her home's lawn.

Tania Ledger, 48, of London, called on expert Chris Naylor, who recreated the Mona Lisa for the film "The Da Vinci Code," to complete a similar work of lawn art, The Telegraph reported Thursday.

Naylor said he spent two days chopping and snipping away at Ledger's lawn with garden tools and a lawn mower to create the grass image of the Mona Lisa.

Ledger said she doesn't mind that the masterpiece will grow out over time.

"It's like a haircut -- if you don't like it you can grow it out and you can try out as many new looks as you like," she told the newspaper.
