I used to spend hours sitting on our living room floor surrounded with blocks and blocks of Lego. I’d make towers out of them and get dismayed when they collapse. I’d make planes out of them and run through our streets holding what I had built in my puny little hands. I’d make fortresses and use my brother’s Matchbox cars to pass through them.
But they were never astounding. They were made by a young boy who had very limited art skills. A boy who used to make drawings by pouring oil on a bond paper and tracing images from textbooks or magazines.
So when I passed by this Lego exhibit over the weekend while hunting for a green collared shirt I didn’t pass up the chance to snap some photos using my camera phone. I didn’t know one could make 4-ft buildings or boats or cars or planes using those colored plastic blocks manufactured by Lego.
I was in awe.
