Lego Church

I received the following pics in an e-mail forward and on googling, found that they are actually a lego reconstruction of the Abston Church Of Christ by Amy Hughes.

A few quick facts:

How long to build it?
It was about a year and a half of planning, building and
Photographing.

How many pieces of LEGO to build it?
More than 75,000?

How big is it?
About 7 feet by 5 1/2 feet by 30 inches
(2.2 am x 1.7 am x .76 am)

How many LEGO people does it seat?
1,372 mini figures

How many windows?
3,976?

It features a balcony, a Narthex, stairs to the balcony,
Restrooms, coat rooms, several mosaics, a nave, a baptistery,
An altar, a crucifix, a pulpit and an elaborate pipe organ.

The mighty Abston Church of Christ organ occupies the rear wall of the nave. The balcony offers excellent viewing of the church. Dual stairways in the narthex offer access to the balcony and organ console.

A view from the balcony looking toward the chancel. There's seating for an 80-member choir under the mosaics. The roof over the chancel and mosaic alcoves is glass.

This picture was taken from the top of one of the mosaics looking back at the nave. There were 622 minifigs in attendance at this service, and the church was less than half full.

Special Guests attending the dedication service

The altar, crucifix and pulpit.

A close view of the pulpit against the color of one of the mosaics. Rev. Ashley tells us it feels like he's floating while he stands at the pulpit. He has a commanding view from here and can probably spot sleepers even in the back pews.

WOW!

Truly amazing! LEGOland always lives up to its name. A good gift for children is Lego - create and spend countless great hours just playing.

That's one talented person! After the first week, I think I would've laid down the Legos and walked away.

I used to specialize in Drive-thru restaurants when I played Legos with my kids--but they were NOTHING like this!!! WOW!

So, now what do you do with this thing? As a mom, I'd be taking it apart after a week of walking around it in the house. :)
