Lego Art – Han Solo in Carbonite
In my younger years my two favourite toys (by far) were Lego and Star Wars figures (the originals not that Jar Jar Binks fool). Why I didn’t think of making a carbonated Han Solo out of Lego I’ll never know, fortunately Nathan Sawaya did think of it and made that legendary wall hanging Han.
I did like Nathan’s reasons behind doing it:
Wanting do a Star Wars model, and also wanting to do something never been done before (to my knowledge), I decided to make Han Solo frozen in carbonite. Life size. It took about 10,000 bricks, almost all dark gray, and about three months of on and off building. I built the sculpture so it can break down easily into smaller parts, thus making it mobile. Because, like most people, I like to take large sculptures of people frozen in carbonite with me whenever I travel.
You can see more pictures of the Han sculpture here and all of Nathan’s other sculptures in his Lego Art Gallery. [Found originally on Crib Candy, thanks.]
