Lego Artisan Creates Endangered Species for Zoo

As you all know, I am constantly surfing through the net trying to bring to you the very best of art, video, images, and entertainment. And I am extremely selective about what I'm going to send to post on my blogsite. Alot of things I see either fail to impress me or aren't appropriate for the blogsite that I am running.

But every so often I find something that strikes a cord close to my heart and i find myself here in front of my laptop again posting a blog of something that has left a lasting impression on my mind. The story is about how the Philadelphia Zoo has a new exhibit featuring 34 endangered species of animals all made out of none other than................LEGO!!!!!!!!

Yes, you heard me right! L.E.G.O. You know that plastic stuff that you played with as a kid. Someone had the ingenius idea to take those same lego pieces and create an exhibit that would promote awareness on the theme of endangered species.

It never ceases to amaze me how people are able to take the simplest things and create something amazing out of it and use it to send a message to the world. Stuff like this is truly worth taking a "selah" (the word means "pause and wait" in ancient hebrew) moment :)
