Tag Archives: Vignette

Vignettes are like the haiku of the LEGO world. Usually built on a base 8 studs wide by 8 studs deep, vignettes show a little scene or a moment in time. But like written poetry, there’s plenty of variation on the basic theme.

“We spared no expense.”

John Hammond would no doubt approve of this Jurassic Park vignette by Combee! who makes his first appearance on TBB. This build really captures the scene by reducing it to only the most essential elements. Also, the floating Hammond-head is a little creepy and it looks to me as if he’s about to consume the baby raptor. It is probably a good thing the builder chose not to use Dr. Sattler’s face, I’m not sure that her expression can be captured with LEGO.

Chanukah at the Cooperman house

Hillel Cooperman over at BrickPOP has built a lovely vignette of his family in their living room on Chanukah (which starts this evening at sunset).

LEGO Chanukah vignette

Hillel says, “Some details include presents, our three cats, all five family members, the menorah, the lit shamash (the candle you light the other candles with), soufganiot (jelly donuts – a holiday tradition), and a lit fire (thank you light brick). Enjoy!”
