LEGO exhibit recreates the world’s most famous landmarks and masterpieces

Australia’s only certified LEGO professional, Ryan ‘The Brickman’ McNaught has organised an exhibition in Sydney’s capital city to display works of art recreated in LEGO.

The collection that’s worth more than $1 million took McNaught’s team thousands of hours to build and includes such works as the Mona Lisa, Le Grande Jette and Michelangelo’s David.

McNaught said: "We’re using a material that kids think is awesome and ace and really topical and we can teach them about things that they don’t necessarily know about," reports ABC.net

"It has a bit of an ulterior motive, in that we call it education by stealth."
