My negativity has also been enhanced by an ongoing row that I've been having with Louis for a couple of months now since I had the audacity to move an unfinished Technics kit that had been cluttering up the living room for two years into a toy box in his bedroom. I have to say though that my views about Lego aren't quite as extreme as those held by Father Slawomir Kostrezewa who, as reported in 'The Guardian', views the toy as Satanic. This is based on the fact that characters from the 'Monsters and Zombies' series have expressions that show satisfaction with their evil acts. I thought that they just looked a little scary, perhaps like a child when bits from a Lego City kit have been inadvertently sucked up in the hoover. Follow the link to see if you agree.
I posted in the past about the brilliant take on artworks produced by Cake and Neave who seem to have gone back to calling themselves 'The Little Artists'. If the price tag on the original Damien Hurst 'Shark' would be a little too eye watering, how about a Lego limited edition for £495 instead?
It seems that 'the Guardian' has gone Lego crazy for it also has a quiz showing sites from around the world that Warren Elsmore has painstakingly recreated in miniature. Now I knew, at once that image Number 5 that is shown above represented one of my most favourite places in the world, on the proviso that I visit outside the main holiday season to avoid the crowds. I just couldn't resist showing a compare and contrast image of my own to give you an extra clue if you need it. Yes I do have some more conventional shots but couldn't help including one that has my handsome metallic beastie parked in the foreground!
