M.C. Escher’s “Relativity” Looks Beautiful In LEGO

We live in an age where the true test of a masterpiece is whether it can be translated to LEGO bricks. M.C. Escher’s famous Relativity has been interpreted in the medium before (and with Star Wars minifigs), but I can’t deny this build by Riccardo Zangelmi is impressive. The color choices and lighting make it stand out.

He put this together for an exhibition in Parma, Italy, and it will actually be on display alongside original pieces by Escher. I’d say it’s quite the honor. It took Zangelmi 15 days to assemble the piece, and it’s comprised of 9,000 bricks.

Check out a couple more photos after the break.
