‘Star Wars Relativity V2’ – A visual mash-up of LEGOs, Star Wars and M.C. Escher

This is amazing! 16-year-old LEGO sculptor Paul Vermeesch has made a fantastic recreation of M.C. Escher’s famous “Relativity” print out of just Lego. Six months in the making, Paul’s ‘Star Wars Relativity V2’ is unlike anything I’ve seen before. Measuring one-cubic-foot, the model recreates a number of iconic scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy – telling the story loosely in a counterclockwise format.

Vermeesch say that he imagines the piece is made up of between 2,000 to 3,000 Lego pieces and it even includes several lights that illuminate the model from inside as well as an amazing mini-cinema tucked in at the back.
