Swedish parishioners unveil Lego statue of Jesus
The Associated Press
Posted: 04/12/2009 08:18:35 AM PDT

It took the 40 volunteers about 18 months to put all the tiny plastic blocks together, and their creation shows a standing Jesus facing forward with his arms outstretched.

The Protestant church was filled to capacity with about 400 worshippers on Sunday when the statue went on display behind the altar, and some of the children in the congregation couldn't help but touch the white art work.

Church spokesman Per Wilder said the statue at the Onsta Gryta church in the central Swedish city of Vasteras is a copy of Danish sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen's "Christus" statue on display in Copenhagen.

He also said that even though the statue is all white on the outside, many of the donated Legos that the church received were of other colors and were placed inside.

Legos are COOL! 😀

Wait, did you guys know about the "brick testament"? Lego Bible stories?

If not, here is a link:

Then there is the Lego harpsichord that actually plays chords on line. I'll make you find that one on your own. 😛
