Unexpected Art

I recently made a trip to the Bristol Renaissance Fair in Illinois, where I came across an awe-inspiring work of art in an unexpected medium…

Orchard

Legos.

Yep. Naturally, my inner shutterbug had to capture some of these images.

The artist of this unique display is part-time Lego hobby-ist Dale Klein of the Northern Illinois Lego Train Club. He started with the idea of building a castle; seven years later, the result was a 40,000-piece landscape complete with every possible kind of (family-friendly) medieval imagery.

My thoughts exactly.

My photos don’t do the whole sculpture justice; you can view more detail in the video below. It’s put together in eight sections, each of which blend together seamlessly to create this impressively detailed medieval landscape.
