How many Legos does it take to make a life-size statue of Jesus?
Never thought it about before?
Turns out it takes nearly 30,000. You can read about it here.
In art, the medium is a part of the message. It used to be that the medium was thought to testify to the subject's worth. A Lego Mickey Mouse, maybe. But a Lego Jesus? Doesn't inspire much reverence...or confidence. If Christ is precious to believers (1 Pet. 2:4-6) it seems gold or silver or bronze would be more appropriate. Or since Christ is the cornerstone and foundation of the church (1 Cor. 3:11; Eph. 2:20). How about a marble, or better yet, a granite Jesus?
