Lego Jesus

Bertel Thorvaldsen's Christus and images of the Lego Jesus

As a kid I have been fascinated with Lego even though I did not have my own set (we can't afford it and the product was not available in local stores yet) . The only chance I played with Lego was whenever I dropped by my cousin's house (and when she was IN THE MOOD to let me delve into my imagination). I have been fantasizing of owning my own set of blocks yet I lost interest. Now that I am earning my own dough, maybe I should give that childhood hangover/fixation a chance to resolve itself by buying my very own Lego... Hmmm...on my birthday perhaps! :D

Anyway, I found out earlier today that Bertel Thorvaldsen's Christus was copied and the copy is made of more or less 30,000 white Lego blocks donated by church-goers! The 5.8 ft statue was painstakingly created for more than a year and was unveiled yesterday, Easter Sunday in Oensta Gryta Church in Vaesteras, Sweden.

Jesus and Lego...Lego and Jesus... Great combo???
