The traditional LEGO vignette (on a 6×6 or 8×8 base) seems to be less in vogue these days than it was a few years ago, but this slightly larger vignette by Matthew Oh has such a great sense of motion that it instantly caught my eye. Depicting the Biblical miraculous destruction of the ancient walled city of Jericho, this vignette makes excellent use of implied motion to draw the viewer in.
It’s really hard to capture a sense of motion in LEGO, but this builder has done an excellent job!
(And great observation, Chris! Thanks for blogging it.)
I love this creation. I also love your use (if I’m not mistaken) of Bastille lyrics in the post title. In fact I love both so much that I had to go into full nerd mode over on my blog. http://brickology.blogspot.com/2014/07/belts-out-british-pop-music.html
