Holy....!



Forwarded email messages rarely catch my interest, much less fascination. The above image is one of those few lovelies that took my breath away. Thanks, Chari, for sharing.

A year and a half of planning, building and photographing. More than 75,000 Lego blocks. About 7 feet by 5 1/2 feet by 30 inches.

It can seat 1,372 Lego people, and you can peek at the interiors through one of its 3,976 windows.

It features a balcony, a Narthex, stairs to the balcony, restrooms, coatrooms, several mosaics, a nave, a baptistery, an alter, a crucifix, a pulpit and an elaborate pipe organ.

Wow.

That reminds me of a woman I read in Reader's Digest a few issues back who used Lego blocks for her master's thesis in Architecture. Amazing. :)
