A MIYAZAKI FAN WITH WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON HIS HANDS...Despite my ever-growing allergy to excessive adulation of and gushing about the works of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, I am a (rarely-posting) member of the the Miyazaki Mailing List, and very occasionally they'll have some sort of topic that's not just "Debate: Is Hayao Miyazaki ingeniously brilliant, or brilliantly ingenious?", and someone whose name appears to be Jean Bass had an interesting link.
Ever wonder what a life-sized statue of San from Princess Mononoke made entirely out of Lego blocks would look like?
Probably not, but one Eric C. Harshbarger has built one anyway.
"Completed, it is 163 rows high (5 feet, 1 1/8 inches). It probably weighs over 80 pounds. It is completely glue-free. It is my favorite sculpture to date..."
The guy is apparently an award-winning Lego sculptor. You can see some of his other work in his portfolio, including a book-style Alice from Alice in Wonderland, Bart Simpson, Milhouse Van Houten, a bust of Conan O'Brien, and R2D2.
