Some terracotta Lego figures were distorted during the making of this picture

Would this be part of that same street chalk event that the City subsequently power washed the very next day?

Very nice! As someone with next to no stereo vision, this might confuse me for a moment if I looked at it from the right angle.

I swear this question is not meant to be snarky, and I truly appreciate the "how" link, but I'm left wondering about the "why"? I mean, have the terracotta warriors been rendered in Lego already and was that the inspiration for this rendering? Did I miss that meme altogether?

(In other words...I'm familiar with the 3-D street art, just not Lego versions of same. Is this a thing?)

squasha, it seems like it was just a cute idea someone had.

I used to live in Sarasota! What a strange town. Between New College and Ringling and the flocks of art-loving retirees, there's a lot of very wealthy people supporting a community of artists. Then there's... everything else.

The YouTube link says that "The painting was made in honor of artist Ego Leonard to support his release out of his protective custody."

This is neat, sure, but seems like the idea is really starting to be overdone.
