(WUSA) -- Children used Lego bricks to create a replica of Johannes Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" during an event in collaboration with the 'Masterpieces from the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis' exhibition, which was held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, at the Legoland Discovery Center Tokyo on August 9, 2012 in Tokyo, Japan.

In total, approximately 380 parents and children participated the Legoland workshops to build the Lego mosaic. They used about 5,000 pieces of Lego bricks during the commemoration of the 380th anniversary of the birth of the Dutch painter.
