Howl's Moving Castle transformed into a LEGO masterpiece

1:00 PM on 11.09.2009 // Colette Bennett

Surely the ambitious LEGO masters of the world are always looking for a large scale project, if only to wow the common toy fans who would never think to embark on such an adventure. Howl's Moving Castle is among my very favorite animated films from Studio Ghibli, and one look at this recreation of the great castle simply takes my breath away.

You can see more pictures of it at the Imagine Brickstone Flickr, and marvel over its greatness (inside as well as outside!). I love the idea that LEGO can coexist as a functional toy for children and a deep source of inspiration for art for adults.You can't name too many toys that have successfully pulled that feat off!
