I was gonna ask if this was the same artist that did some other really cool 3D artwork I had seen in the past, then saw the link.
I love this stuff.

It was this guy that I was thinking of

I think that's intended to be a Lego representation of the terra cotta warriors that were unearthed in China some years ago.

It's a chalk representation of a Lego representation of a terracotta representation of some warriors.

Now we just need some warriors to be drawing the thing, and it will be all recursive and meta and stuff.

Are they still giving out money from the NEA for this stuff? Where do I apply?

@ glatt

I can help you with your application. For a small fee, I will take care of all the paperwork. I will be your only contact, and your liasion. I will deal with the decision makers.

PM for an address where you can send your money order.

I can't promise you a grant, but I will do my best to persuade the committee that your ideas need funding.

Won't you support me, I mean, um... the arts?
