Religion and Lego

Those who didnt make it all the way through Nelson D. Schwartzs 2,700 word article on Lego in yesterdays New York Times Sunday Business section may have missed this gem of a factoid: Among the thousands of blogs and websites that cater to the toy brands grown-up fans is GodBricks, a blog about Lego creations that depict religious imagery. (Blogging at the intersection of Lego and religion is the blogs tagline.)

I couldnt resist: I Googled GodBricks, which currently features a model of Pariss Notre-Dame cathedral and a diorama of the murder of Thomas Becket, among other truly remarkable feats of Lego art.
