Here’s another jab at Wood’s famous artwork, and they got this recreation perfectly. They even have a garden fork. 

Another cool fact about Wood’s painting revolves around the subjects. While many painters’ subjects are models, royalty, or Revolutionary war heroes, Wood chose his sister and his dentist for the job.
