From 1928 to 1987, Andy Warhol made a series of silkscreen prints inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s legendary Mona Lisa painting. Aptly named Double Mona Lisa, the Warhol artwork featured dual portraits of the Renaissance era piece with one of them being sold for nearly $215,000 USD at the 2002 Post-War & Contemporary Art Sale at Christie’s London. The silkscreen is now the focus of a collaborative BE@RBRICK edition between the Andy Warhol Foundation and Medicom Toy.

The 100% and 400% sized collectibles are entirely covered with a montage of the Double Mona Lisa visual alongside Andy Warhol’s signature on the back portions of the toys. Prices range between ¥12,000 JPY and ¥48,000 JPY (approx. $107 USD and $430 USD). The edition will release at Medicom Toy stockists including Rakuten this September.

Elsewhere in standout art releases, Virgil Abloh and MCA Chicago unveil Figures of Speech book with Prestel UK ahead of the duo’s exhibition this June.
