Talented Danish designer Lene Wille recently created a LEGO sculpture entitled Metaphorical Horizons, proving these building blocks aren't just fun for kids. Wille chose to experiment with elements of professionalism and playfulness in the piece, constructing it entirely out of white LEGO blocks. Accompanied with a small team, Lene Wille embraced her love for LEGO over a six-week period, carefully connecting a grand total of 270,000 building blocks. The purpose of the piece is to explore the role of the horizontal line in architecture, and Wille definitely achieved this by creating her rounded design out of straight horizontal pieces. The design's simplicity and medium is intriguing, and it definitely gives toy blocks a posh and professional appearance.

Lene Wille's art is surely a blockbuster and will appeal to art critics and LEGO lovers alike.
