Van Gogh's Starry Night in LEGO

From Buxley’s LEGO page:

In the Spring of 2001, I created a large mosaic of one of my favorite paintings, Van Gogh’s Starry Night. The mosaic is made completely out of LEGO bricks and measures 45″ (144 studs) wide by 36″ (116 studs) tall. It took several months and approximately ten thousand bricks to complete.

LEGO rocks! If I ever become a parent I will no doubt expand my old collection.

Also check the original painting at The Museum of Modern Art’s Starry Night web page and David Brooks’ excellent Vincent van Gogh Gallery if you’re interested in Van Gogh’s work.
