MocAthalon 2015: The Art of War
About this creation
Team: Five Bricks of Flame
Category: 19) Lego Optical Illusions





"O divine art of subtlety and secrecy! Through you we learn to be invisible, through you inaudible; and hence we can hold the enemy's fate in our hands."

"All warfare is based on deception."

This was another fun one. I've been interested in optical illusions and impossible objects for a long time, and this was a perfect opportunity to build one. And I learned that quoting The Art of War sounds really cool.

Quoting iGreen . Outstanding work, Kevin! What really cacthes my eye is that tree. How did you do it?
Thank you! I used the tree leaf pieces with grass stalks threaded through the gaps and holes, and secured the grass with the flowers on top. Once you get the hang of it, it's very easy.

Quoting Max Pointner 5 points.
Thank you!
Quoting The Royal Brick As I have said before, this build is deceptively impressive, and a really amazing work. I've posted it up in a post on my blog here
Cool, thanks!

5 points. Never seen that particular Penrose shape in lego before and you've captured (and photographed it) exceedingly well.

Brilliant illusion! Took me a few retakes to realize what was going on! ;)
  March 16, 2015
Well, there is nothing like a double-take to wake you up in the morning! I love the ingenuity of your box and the nearly prosaic effect it has on the scene. I also feel compelled to compliment your blossoming tree in the background; very inventive! I love this scene!

The build is quite simple, probably worthy of a high 3, but that cube, though.... Wow. Score: 5.

Quoting The Royal Brick Wow! I was just about to comment that you are not aloud to use photo editing, when I noticed that you hadn't! (That's meant as a complement) Amazing!
Yep, no editing here! I just had to take the pictures from a very particular angle. :)
