The Art of the Brick

While we were in San Diego for Thanksgiving with our daughter and her family, we attended a leggo art exhibition.” The Art of the Brick”  at the Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park featured the astonishing creations of artist Nathan Sawaya.

I will let the photographs speak for themselves in this slideshow. To give you some sense of scale, the Easter Island monolith in the first photograph contains some 85,000! leggos.

I can only ask myself, “How can someone take these simple tiny children’s toys and make such incredible works of art?” We are blessed that there are such people as Nathan Sawaya who make our lives so much more interesting by their creativity.

    What a wonderful exhibit to see! Girl with a Pearl Earring would be my favorite, I have a passion for her on canvas so my vote goes with her in the leggo medium as well.

    This was exhibited in Hamburg as well. Among all sculptures, the T-Rex was my favorite 🙂
