London: Amsterdam`s Van Gogh museum has come up with high-quality 3D replicas of some of the Dutch painter`s finest paintings.

The replicas come with a price tag of 22,000 pounds.

The museum`s director, Axel Ruger, said that if you`re a layman, the reproductions are pretty indistinguishable from the originals, but if you`re a connoisseur and you look more closely, you can see the difference, the Guardian reported.

The museum has partnered up with Fujifilm to create the replicas, called Relievos , with the help of a complex technology, known as Reliefography, that it has taken more than 7 years to develop and only three a day can be made.

The 3D scanning technique has so far reproduced Almond Blossom (1890), Sunflowers (1889), The Harvest (1888), Wheatfield under Thunderclouds (1890) and Boulevard de Clichy (1887).
