Leg(o)ality

For all you Lego fans out there, here's some inspiration: a large detailed model of the Supreme Court of Canada.


This beauty, created by Andrew Frape, 27 years old, of Saskatchewan, was intended as a combination Christmas and birthday gift for his wife, Bryn, who had asked him to build her a Lego model for her office to make it more homey.

In using more than $1500 worth of custom-ordered Lego pieces, 5000 pieces in all, Frape created a model that exceeded all expectation. It measures 1.2 metres by 60 centimeters, is 1 metre high and took more than a year to plan and build in the family living room.
