The Ypres’ Menin Gate Memorial in Lego Bricks!

Ypres' Menin Gate in Lego‘Not really a lifestyle-related post’, you say? I know but I was so impressed with what I had seen, I just had to write about it. Jan Vanden Berghe (Langemark, Belgium) is a huge LEGO fan. What started out with sorting plastic bricks of the grown-up kids turned into a lifetime passion. Once all parts were sorted and everything was nicely organized, he got started.

He wanted to create something symbolic. So, he decided to build a replica of the Ypres’ Menin Gate Memorial. During 5 months, he spent every weekend building the replica using 55.000 parts. This is the fantastic result…
