I Never Thought I’d Say These Words – M.C. Escher’s Relativity: LEGO Star Wars Edition

From the artist:

I attempted to stay as true as possible to the geometry and proportions of Esher’s work, while bringing in the colors, worlds, and characters of Star Wars, and the freshness of the Lego medium.

Lots of detailed close-up shots and larger-size pics at MOCPages.

I think my favorite detail would be Lego-Luke’s severed Lego-hand falling, still clutching his Lego-lightsaber.

    Whoa. Once you built that, you wouldn’t want to take it apart. It’s a conversation piece for nerdy kids and adults.

    Harvey’s a nerd!

    I freely confess to being in slack-jawed awe of M.C. Escher’s work ever since first spying it as a wee lad of 5 or so (one of my older brothers had some posters of his work, my local public library did the rest.)

    And when Star Wars came out in 1977, I paid money to see it in the theater 9 times. As I recall, the one-screen theater in my home town – which usually changed movies weekly – held it over for about a month.

    So yeah, I’m totally nerd-busted.

    Years ago, when my kids were in the ‘Lego phase,’ they didn’t have pieces like that to allow such constructions. I tell you, Harvey, however, if they had – and we had – it would still be around in someone’s house. So, yeah!

    (Was never into Star Wars, however. No decent plot!)
