Welcome to the Rock

I know, I'm behind. All of the major blogs have covered this already, but I would be amiss if I didn't cover the latest Arthur Gugick masterpiece. After presenting the key Catholic structure (St. Peter's) last week, now he comes out with one of the key buildings of Islam, the Dome of the Rock. Be sure to look at the larger pictures to see the amazing detail work.

Give Piece a Chance

This has been around for a while, but it seems like there is a new display. Plus, I never did blog this here on MicroBricks, so this is a great opportunity. Piece of Peace is a display of UNESCO World Heritage sites built by LEGO Master Builder Kazuyoshi Naoe that has been shown at various Japanese locations. Find more about this here, here and here. It looks like this is currently on display in Tokyo, and there may be some new additions. Some of my favorites are Mont St. Michel, the Colosseum and Big Ben.
