One of Théry’s latest projects is a series of photographs mocking classic works of art, wherein Barbie serves as a replacement for their famous male subjects.

The series, which includes mocks of Da Vinci’s The Last Supper, Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam, and Grant Wood’s American Gothic, is now on display in an exhibition called “Not the ones you think” at the Teodora gallery in Paris.

According to Bored Panda, the series serves to “raise questions about beauty, intelligence, and women’s place in society – both then and now.”
