‘game over’ by kordian lewandowski

polish artist kordian lewandowski has taken inspiration from michelangelo famous la pieta sculpture and
reinterpreted it using nintendo characters. lewandowski’s sculpture features mario and princess in place
of jesus and mary from michelangelo’s. named ‘game over’, the piece is made from polystyrene foam
that lewandowski carved in full scale using a chainsaw at first and more precise tools to finish. while the
sculpture may not be included in an art history book, it showcases one of the most iconic sculptural
subjects of the renaissance re-contextualized using the storyline of mario instead of the bible.
