The lovely MashPotato challenges you to pixel a sprite that would be at home in a non-stop-action-packed, side-scrolling 2D platformer... taking place in an art gallery!

Pick a famous sculpture or painting and bring it to life by transforming it into an enemy or hero sprite
People paintings do not have to stay in their canvas.
For example. the Mona Lisa can have leg and arms and does not need to be in the frame.

Animation: required; must be an attack, idle, walking, or death animation
Transparency: required only if you only make the sprite. Mockups do not need transparency.
Canvas Size: no restrictions
Colours: 24 (includes transparency)
References: please link to the original artwork, regardless of how well-known you think it is.

The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.
