LEGO Craftmanship of the Day: 400,000 Brick Hogwarts
It took Seattle-based LEGO artist Alice Finch one year and 400,000 bricks to complete this recreation of Harry Potter's Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Though the piece won People's Choice and Best in Show at the LEGO convention BrickCon in October 2012, photos of the piece were not revealed online until this week, after it was put on display at the Emerald City Comicon last weekend. After the LEGO castle was transported to the event in six SUVs, it took several sets of hands to reconstruct on the convention floor. For more detailed photos, check out Finch's Flickr.
