That’s it, even museum artworks are not immune to selfies

Olivia Muus, the brains behind Museum of Selfies, has been on a roll staging these pictures of characters in museum art taking selfies of themselves, as well as getting other people to stage them. She started the project after going with a friend to the National Gallery of Denmark in Copenhagen and did one for fun.

As she remarked on her site, ‘(I) liked how this simple thing could change their character and give their facial expression a whole new meaning’. Pretty much like this one of Mona Lisa doing one on Instagram.
