Japanese artist Sachiko Akinaga's LEGO New York Times Magazine logo is an intricate sculpture constructed from thousands of building blocks. The magazine's iconic 'T' logo was constructed for the cover of the publication's Winter travel issue.

The whimsical piece features playful and very realistic details of Central Park. The sculptural piece took eleven days to construct and is the artist's largest work to date. The unbelievable final result showcases humanized LEGO figurines as they relax, play music, dance, eat and swim in the park and on the building's terrace. The witty detailing also includes park visitors who are reading The New York Times.

The artful nature of this piece brings emphasis to the immense amount of detailing needed to create the final sculpture. This building block creation is complex, memorable and most of all fun!
