Who would have thought that the dry, red soil of outback New South Wales could support such a vibrant forest?!
Appearing at Broken Hill’s Living Desert from July 2 to July 12, the forest consists of the iconic Lego ‘pine’ trees scaling four metres in height and the familiar flower sets. The trees and flowers are replicas of the original play pieces but more than sixty-six times bigger in size to make the magical play world a reality.
The trees were last spotted earlier this year in Sydney’s bustling Martin Place, where office workers were delighted by the colour and fun on their way to work. Both installations are part of the Lego Festival of Play, a nine-month schedule of hands-on events and elaborate creations all set to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Lego brick in Australia.
I wonder where the Lego forest will sprout next?
