Lego tells Bible stories
Anyone who enjoys stories from the Bible in a somewhat unorthodox
setting will find The Brick Testament (http://www.thebricktestament.com)
to their liking. Here, surfers can click their way through famous
Bible scenes made of Lego blocks, set up and digitally photographed
by California's Brendan Powell Smith. Among the scenes already
put into plastics are the first two books of the Old Testament
(Genesis and Exodus) as well as the gospels, acts, and epistles
of Paul. Most scenes are built completely out of original Lego
blocks, assures the artist and self-proclaimed "Reverend"
of his Web site. Only in exceptional circumstances did he reach
for the X-acto knife or Sharpie.
