Some LEGO builders elevate the form to fine art in its own right, while others enjoy reproducing famous works of art with the brick. Find beautiful and thought-provoking LEGO artwork right here.

A Brick-built Schwibbogen for Christmas

Don’t worry if you don’t know what a Schwibbogen is – I didn’t either. As builder Robert H. kindly explains, it’s a type of traditional German Christmas decoration in the form of an ornate candle holder. Robert’s full-size LEGO Schwibbogen is modeled after a famous one, and depicts artisans at work.


Mr. and Mrs. Harold Healy Are Looking as Sturdy as Ever

Architectural guru Erwin te Kortschot is back to creating brilliant LEGO skyscrapers. His most recent is a translation of one of the artist Achilles Gildo Rizzoli’s drawings, a portrait of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Healy in architectural form. Erwin’s interpretation of the sketch into brick form makes a very visually interesting tower.

LEGO Minifigs – Now in Wooden Form

Fellow Brother-Brick Tim[1] spotted these, and I couldn’t pass them up. They’re made by a cat who goes by the name Ragskin, and posted on DeviantArt. I know some folks are not fans of Lego themed (but non-Lego made/licensed) art pieces, but I am. In fact, years ago, I welded together some LEGO bricks from steel. They jury of that art show quite liked them, actually. Regardless, I think these wooden minifigs would be a great office decoration, and a little classier than a standard creation. I’d like to think one of these could sit in Jorgen Vig’s office. I especially dig the attention to detail taken on the space man.

Fire and water

Sean and Steph Mayo have cranked their building skills to overdrive to bring us two back-to-back creations featuring real fire and water. The first is a spinning flame sculpture called Green Fire Tornado, and the second is a beautiful terrarium with a working waterfall. There are no limits to what can be built with Lego when these two are at work.
