Lego Art


I'm continuing my posts about the Lego Exhibit at the Heard Museum.  This wonderful coyote was created by Steven and Wyatt Yazzie.

He's a very willy character, don't you think?





































Another impressive creation was this Native American blanket make of Lego tiles.
































The blanket that was used as the model was also there for comparison.

Pretty clever work, I'd say.

I know a young man who would have loved to see them. He had me trying to make a dinosaur out of Lego only last week. It's either a very poor attempt or a new species of dinosaur as yet unknown to science!

Very clever, indeed. That coyote really does look like a coyote and the other designs really do look like the old computer games!

Wow, these are fantastic. It's the first time I see Native Lego. Yazzie is a Native name, right?

This makes me want to go out and buy some to play with myself!

They are fantastic. Now all that lego coyote needs is a phone, because rather than chasing a lego road runner, he should just order out for pizza.

These fit the theme of the Heard Museum.

The coyote's tail makes him very endearing.

Love the blanket.

Steve Reed said...

LOL -- is that an "Angry Birds" Native American blanket?! I love the things that inspire people to create art. :)

I have been seeing LEGOs in many adult artistic uses in the past several years. It could be that artists have discovered them, but I suspect that LEGO is subsidizing this as a way of broadening their appeal.

Brilliant, this and last post Sharon, never ceases to amaze me what can be created using these wonderful little blocks.. but first time I've seen anything like the blanket.
