A Jar Jarring Experience

Brick City by Warren Elsmore
Reading Public Museum - Reading, PA
For the past nine years, Warren Elsmore has been building large and intricate models out of Lego bricks.  Some of these are part of an art display at the Reading Public Museum called Brick City.  It will be exhibited through September 6th.

We got to see many of his models yesterday, including a massive one of the London Underground.  I'll write more about those and the other exhibits at the museum at another time.  However, there was an easter egg in the Las Vegas exhibit that I wanted to share right now.

My wife and I got married and had our honeymoon in Las Vegas ten years ago.  We stayed at The Luxor, which is the giant black pyramid on the Vegas Strip, so I was curious to see how it looked in Lego form.  There's the pyramid right where it's supposed to be, and the obelisk standing tall.  And look, there's the Sphinx sitting in front of the... wait a minute...

Is that... could it be... it is!  It's Jar Jar Sphinx!
