Reflective, Upside-Down Mural in Lithuania

Artist Ray Bartkus painted a mural on a water-front building in MarijampolÄ—, Lithuania. The trick with this mural is that it’s painted upside down, i.e., meant to be viewable on the surface of the water:

Super! Because sometimes you need to stand on your head (so to speak) to bring things into focus. 🙂

An Epic LEGO Rendering of an Epic Poem

Homer’s epic poem The Odyssey was to retold by VirtuaLUG – in LEGO blocks. Their incredible 300-square-foot layout features numerous scenes from Odysseus’ 10-year adventure. The scenes include but are by no means limited to:

Kudos! This is such a creative, epic version of the poem beautifully and imaginatively rendered. Because “toy” is such a restrictive descriptor for LEGOs. Because old stuff need not be stuffy.
