Lite Brite Tapestry


The above image is a reproduction of a 15th century tapestry. But this isn’t any reproduction. It looks a bit off because it is made out of Lite Brite. You know that toy that you would use seven pegs with to create a smiley face and then show your mom? This guy used Lite Brite to reproduce it. It couldn’t be any more vintage unless the Fonz was somehow involved.


Graphite Sculptures


You know graphite as the stuff that comes out of your pencil when you sharpen it. This guy decided that he would make sculptures out of it. And he did not just get a lot of graphite and carve them normally. He took a chisel and carved the tip of a pencil to make the sculpture. His entire line of amazing pieces have toured museums at only the cost of his eyesight and sanity.


Lego “Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima”


We have all seen the picture from WW2. It’s fake. But that doesn’t mean that a couple of guys did not raise a flag on Iwo Jima. This “brick artist” created a replica of the event. The sculpture was so incredible that it is being featured at the National Museum of the Marine Corps. We expect to see a Mega Block recreation of the Times Square kiss within the year.
