This autumnal ranch scene will cause conflicting emotions. On one hand, you should love it because it’s beautifully built — Heikki Mattila has done a great job on the battered homestead, the tree, and the outlying structures like the well and pigsty. However, the muted color scheme and air of neglect and decay create a real sense of foreboding. LEGO creations are generally bright and cheery, the gloominess of this one makes for a strangely refreshing change.
Although the builder makes no mention of any zombie apocalypse, I can’t shake the feeling that the shambling undead are about to appear and chase the poor old dude off his porch.
