I always used Playmobil figurines to reenact my favorite movies, but artist Pierre-Adrien Sollier recreates famous works of art with Playmobil shapes, painting images of the plastic toys in the place of people and animals.

Sollier's paintings are, as you might expect, rather playful, taking familiar paintings and substituting in those ever-smiling figurines. Even though Sollier's artistic tributes are paintings, his use of toys as the subjects make them almost resemble dioramas — or, at the very least, a child's playtime.

You can see more of Sollier's Playmobil paintings at his website and on Facebook.
