The Power of Freedom: Iraq

Mike Doyle (!snap!) has just posted a rather amazing piece of art. The depressing and horrifying subject matter of this piece is almost intensified by the choice of medium…LEGO is after all associated with innocence and happiness.

I will let the viewer interpret and reflect on its meaning on their own.

Thanks to Jack for the heads up.

    I don’t entirely agree with the message, but I am still overawed by the power of this creation; definitely the most intense piece of LEGO art that I have ever seen.

    Funny that the association of innocence and happiness is mentioned, while more than half of the MOCs blogged here are war machines, after all.

    @ Porsuk: Yes and no. I was referring to the fact that at it`s roots, LEGO is a childrens toy. I don`t think the fact that geeky man-children (myself included) tend to enjoy building pew-pew spaceships and mecha really has bearing on the impact of this particular piece :D
