Legends in LEGO

As a child, I was a great admirer of M.C. Escher's surrealist drawings. I was also completely obsessed with LEGO. Now a couple of guys with a lot of time on their hands have combined both these obsessions by building LEGO versions of Escher's most famous drawings.

Self confessed nerds Andrew Lipson and Daniel Shiu used LEGO, computer programming skills, 3D modeling and a digital camera to re-create Escher's works. My favorite is the one pictured with this post Ascending and Descending, but Relativity is pretty cool too. Beats the crap out of my Escher A&D jigsaw!

Thanks to Laughing Squid for this one.
