Life-Sized Lego Forest Appears in Australian Outback
Recently a life-sized lego forest has sprouted up in the small isolated mining town of Broken Hill located in New South Wales, in the Australian outback. Residents woke up in shock to see 15 flower sets and 15 13-foot tall pine trees covering the landscape of the red barren soil. These life-size sculptures were designed at a 1:1 ratio but were made 66 times the size of the original toys which were planted by LEGO to celebrate 50 years of distribution in Australia and New Zealand. Caroline Squire, the Director of Marketing of LEGO Australia and New Zealand said, “The contrast of the larger-than-life green trees against the vast red Aussie land is an unforgettable sight!”. This installation is currently on until July 12.
