Just when you thought these paintings are iconic enough, someone decides to shake it up with our favorite animal—Panda! Chinese online illustrator A-Long re-imagines iconic paintings from artists like Edvard Munch, Michelangelo, Vincent van Gogh, and Leonardo Da Vinci, with pandas instead of humans.

These classic paintings turned out to be really adorable-looking with pandas in them, and they’re all museum-worthy too! A-Long also turned his paintings into GIFs which made them more interesting and quite funny.
