Let me share some of the pictures taken in the exhibition, some of them are quite “expressive” and it is amazing how Sawaya managed to create masterpieces with LEGO bricks.
It is a work of a genius with great ideas and concepts. It is no secret we enjoyed the exhibition and it is also understandable why the exhibition is extended to 26th May. It is not just a popular exhibition but an inspiring one too.
